MY_WTC #554 | Christopher 1970 | Liberty Island

Published 06/05/2015

When I was a kid, „Windows on the World“ was my favorite restaurant. I would beg my dad to take us there for special occasions.┬áMy father took a picture of me (in the middle) with my two sisters on a wall either at the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island. I’m not sure where we are. Clearly, my mom had a penchant for dressing me in Jackson Pollock pants and striped shirts. Thanks, Mom! :-)

After my dad died in 2007 I went through all the Kodachrome slides he had taken. I love seeing the Twin Towers in the upper left corner of this snapshot as they were being built. I believe we can rebuild our innocence. I think social connectivity, art, and daily physicality are the best places to start to reconnect to everything we lost on 9/11/01.
