Hi Larry,
An interesting photograph given the historical aspects of what really 
catches the eye! :-(

Sorry to bring it up, but the only thing holding the eyes to the scene are 
the Twin Towers! :-(

I would think I'd keep this photograph some place very safe for it's 
historical value. Yep probably a huge number of photos around showing a 
scene or similar views. But then you are a recorder of life moments, a 
photojournalist. Therefore have a responsibility the every day happy snapper 
doesn't think about...... the true value of images such as this.
Showing "The Way it Was!"
