The Freedom tower through the fence

In this shot the fence frames a portion of the NYC skyline with the freedom tower in the center of the shot. This image captures the many layers of NYC, showing the lower income housing and graffiti of the lower east side to the new big expansive glass skyscrapers that now rise above the city. The skyline is changing, but the past will never be forgotten as the reflections of those older buildings and neighborhoods are seen on the outside of the new glass skyscrapers.
