World Financial Center, Yacht Harbour at North Cove, and Battery Park City seen from the Hudson River, Manhattan, New York City


This is a photo of World Financial Center, Yacht harbour at North Cove, and Battery Park City seen from the Hudson River.
The World Financial Center is a complex of buildings across West Street from the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan in New York City, overlooking the Hudson River.
Designed by César Pelli, with Adamson Associates, the complex was built by Olympia and York between 1985 and 1988 on landfill used to build Battery Park City. The fill material came from dirt excavated during the building of the World Trade Center, as well as garbage, dirt and debris. Portions of the complex, especially the Winter Garden Atrium, were severely damaged in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, but have since been reopened after significant repairs.

As you take some great photographs, you might be interested in a photo challenge each month on my blog.

It's called "5 on the fifth" - you either take 5 random pictures of something that happens to you on the 5th of September (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme. This month, the theme is The Blues.

A link to past months can be found here:

You add a comment on my blog on the 5th with your name, location and link where the pictures can be found.
