MY_WTC #474 | Margie 1991 | on top of the world

Published 03/27/2013

I was in NYC visiting my Mom who was in the latter stages of ALS disease Nov of 1991. She was in the hospital and visiting hours were late afternoon. One day while waiting to visit her, my stepfather and I went downtown for several hours to the WTC. I had been living in Arizona for many years and had never been to the WTC before. As a kid I remember visiting the Empire State Building but never the WTC. It really was incredible, a city within a city. When I was on the top story (110 floor) and took this photo called „Looking Out“ it was like being on top of the world.“
