Some final pictures from Las Vegas ....

The Strip, and New York, New York in the daytime.

 

 

 

The 'old' Las Vegas - downtown Fremont Street:

 

  

 

Venetian hotel - a quite credible reproductio of the real thing (Piazza St. Marks in Venice - middle photo).   As an aside, the tower (called the camponile), was used as a model for the water tower at Jones Beach in Long Island (right photo).

 

 

 

 


Freedom Tower - first columns placed in Ground Zero   2006-12-26

 

Just before the holidays the relatives of the victims of 9/11 signed the first 2 columns (the ones in white), and were dedicated in a ceremony with former Gov. Pataki.    I took these photos the day after, from the temporary bridge on Vesey St. (north side of Ground Zero) going across West St., looking south.
