Sunset from Battery Park

Posted by vmsalama on October 10, 2013

Been spending a lot of time in Battery Park these days….did you know the southern shoreline of Manhattan has long been known as the Battery, and was a popular promenade since at least the 17th century….It is also home to the East Coast Memorial, which commemorates U.S. servicemen who died in coastal waters of the western Atlantic Ocean during World War II, and several other memorials. The city has done some extraordinary things with this neighborhood since the tragic September 11th attacks (the World Trade Center is only 4 blocks away from where I’m standing right now).

Anyway, we’ve had some storms blow in and out of the city this week and with them, some extraordinary sunsets, pointing my camera towards downtown Jersey City. I’m so proud to have taken these photos — I AM NOT a professional photographer, but I don’t think these are half bad (these were taken on my cell phone and I did not use photoshop or any special effects — what you see is what I saw)!!!  What do YOU think?
