MY_WTC #173 | Mari Ichaso 1970s | Papi and MC

Published 07/07/2011

My father Justo Rodriguez Santos, a poet and writer who lived in New York, loved the WTC and all its grandiosity. He even loved his inmense parking area which he called Crete’s Labyrinth! He often took my young daughter on outings on the Staten Island Ferry to see it and the Statue of Liberty. This photo is very dear to us. He died before the WTC was attacked and I always think he would have been very upset by all the destruction.
