MY_WTC #221 | Katherine 2000

Louann & Kat, Top of Empire State Building

This was my first trip to NYC. The reason for my trip was to participate in a couple of photography workshops, one in the city and the other in Woodstock. We were blessed with amazing weather on the trip. Growing up in Southern California with no east coast connections, I had never given the WTC much thought.

I didn’t feel compelled to visit it, though our bus tour did drive by it. I took a second trip to the east coast in February 2001. I was on a train from Philadelphia to NYC – the conductor mentioned how they used the WTC as a beacon at night which let them know they were close to the city.
