Picture Lower Manhattan: A View Grows in Brooklyn

03/13/2012 in

Last Sunday I spent a few hours on a harbor tour with the Audubon Society searching for seals and winter birds. While we only saw glimpses of harbor seals (they return to Canada around this time of year) we saw an amazing amount of wildlife. At one point the boat was idling along the banks of the harbor while most passengers searched the shoreline for a rare duck. I turned around and noticed 1 World Trade rising above some old factories along the Brooklyn shoreline. This foreground provided a great visual contrast for the modern skyscraper rising in Lower Manhattan.
