Whimsical Windows - Freedom

Patti's fabulous capture of the Freedom Tower in Manhattan, from the BQE in Brooklyn.
Toby is the host of the fun meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors - and I hope you have been able to dig out from your monstrous snowfall :)

Today, our son cameron who has landed a great job in New York City has moved to his new apartment today and three vehicles filled with belongings make the trek to his place for his move. 

In our van, I was the driver and the lovely Patti chronicled our trip in pictures. Along the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (I-278), there are some great views across the East River toward Manhattan - and she captured this fantastic view of the almost completed Freedom Tower. From that worst of days in 2001, the new tower shows us that despite the evil that surrounds can never impact us if we have both resilience and hope. It seems to have a glow as it rises toward the heavens...
