Isle of Manhattan

In June, I went on a trip to New York City with one of my best friends since age twelve and our teenage daughters. It was only my second trip ever to NYC. The first trip was in 1987 when the Twin Towers were still standing.

Here are two photos of Lower Manhattan from both trips to show a comparison of then and now.
