Nearly five years after hurricane Sandy destroyed it, the new South Ferry station, the southern terminus of the New York City Subway's 1 train, reopened at noon today. It originally opened 16 March 2009 and replaced the original South Ferry station, which dated from 1905. It was destroyed just three and a half years later when Sandy made landfall and flooded Lower Manhattan in 29 October 2012.
Welten treffen aufeinander. Dieses Foto habe ich am Hudson River gemacht. Innerhalb von wenigen Sekunden wurde aus strahlendem Sonnenschein ein düsteres Gewitter. In New York gibt es nicht nur Wetter-Extreme. Die Stadt lebt von aufeinander treffenden Extremen. New York ist ein Melting Pod. Aus aller Welt kommen Leute nach New York, um hier ihren Weg zu finden. Und egal wie verschieden wir alle sind, New Yorker stehen immer zusammen. Ohne den Melting Pod Aspekt wäre New York nicht New York. #ErlebeEs#NewYork#USA#Abschied

Having lived in San Francisco (Burlingame, I know-It's NOT San Francisco), for nearly 2 years, I experienced feelings while walking in New York City that I couldn't describe, because knowing something so completely negates any need for description--until I need to share the feeling~at which point, I'm kinda stuck, until it all becomes accessible to me in the format of language, either written, or spoken.
A linguist once told me: "There'd be no anthropology without Linguistics." After 2 months of standing on the bridge watching the river Time flow beneath I still can't find many words for what I saw, felt, understood, and learned about the magnificent capacity for human creativity, ingenuity, expression, and interaction in a long weekend among Supertall Structures.
Behind my back, just steps away from where I took the photo of the sun burst on One World Trade Center is the Street-Level lobby and very grand entry of the Goldman-Sachs building.
Hanging as the focal point of that extremely exclusive, sophisticated, space, is a piece of art by Julie Mehretu titled "mural" that changed my notion of just where the boundaries lie at edge of the highest level of artistic expression.
It was in researching this amazing young woman that I found the following quote in which she states succinctly what I felt in my marrow, and as yet can't put down in words, not in any concise manner anyway. "The summer after her graduation, in 1992, Julie Mehretu and two college friends went to San Francisco. “ '. . . we thought that was the place to be,” she said. “But within a week we’d decided it wasn’t. San Francisco didn’t have the edge, didn’t feel like a place that was making culture in a way that interested us.' ~julie mehretu~
thank you, @drgreenhaw 🙏
View of Brooklyn and east river from World Trade Center 🌆. Subir no One World Observatory é uma experiência inesquecível em NY! Além de conhecer um pouco mais sobre o processo de construção do novo prédio do One World Trade Center, a vista do topo do prédio mais alto do ocidente é sensacional! Mesmo sendo lotado de turistas, o passeio vale muito a pena. Recomendamos comprar ingresso com antecedência pelo site! 🗽
