As the anniversary nears , and that we think to the victims of vicious killers that day, here are a few pictures I took in the early eighties , during my first stay in New York city . I did not like very much the buildings, by the way , but had them several times framed for my photographic work .
Somebody said "If you can do it in New York , you can do it everywhere" . As I did many other places at that time , I hitch-hiked in the North East , to and from NY , and slept in various places , with valuables & cameras in a locker at the Greyhound terminal . I ended up sleeping at this very terminal on 42nd street , in a quiet spot I discovered . 42nd St and 8th Ave was an experience , especially in the evening .
I walked up and down in the big city . The towers were always there , dwarfing the other buildings . I did not even go on top . I thought it was too high for a picture . Prefered the Empire State .
Those who did that on a september day, those who financed that and those who celebrated that , worked for their own demise .
