Good Morning!

We are staying on the 54th floor of the Millennium Hilton Hotel.   Since we are here for Steve to work on Freedom Tower, it makes sense to overlook the site.  I can tell you that they work seven days a week and late into the night to do the work.  It seems between the federal government and insurance companies, money is no object.  It is odd to look down on the toy machinery and tiny people scurrying about.

I had not realized what a tourist attraction this is.  People are lined up to see and an expensive walkway has been built to enhance the experience.

How odd it seems.  I have visited NY since 9-11, but never wanted to come to this end of the island and see the site.  Somehow the tragedy was what most resonated with me, but now I am here, and I see the rebuilding.  It will be magnificent and make the statement we seem to need.
