From my archives. I managed to get  permission to get my helicopter in close to the statue for a story I was doing on National Parks special edition  for NatGeo. A spectacular morning as I recall.

On 9/11 I was in New York having breakfast with photographer Ira Block. See his essay on the survivors of the Twin Towers tomorrow here on Burn.

  1. You know, I don’t think I ever liked them as buildings. They were just the same kind of soulless steel and glass box that became popular in the fifties, only much bigger. Not at all interesting to look at, unlike the Chrysler Building or the Empire State Building. And now they loom large in the minds of people who would never have given them a thought one way or the other before 9/11/01. The transformative power of tragedy at work, I suppose.
