So last weekend Kongo checked out the area around Wall street in lower Manhattan. It had been a few years and Kongo wanted to see if anything changed. It hadn’t. It was pretty quiet and all the “Occupy” activists are long gone. It was just the monkey and a flock of other tourists taking pictures. Above Alexander Hamilton poses in front of the Federal Building on Wall Street.
This isn’t exactly Wall Street. But it is a turkey. A wild turkey that was wandering about in Battery Park near where the tourists get on the boats to the Statue of Liberty. No stock tips from this guy. He just wandered around and pecked at bits of popcorn left over from some passing muncher.
The World Trade Center in New York City disappears in a misty morning. See more misty images at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack.
Along the lower West Side of Manhattan near the new World Trade Center is the neighborhood of Battery Park City. This is the newest part of ever-changing NYC and is about 90 acres of reclaimed land from the remains of the building destroyed on September 11 as well as land dredged from near Staten Island.
Last October Kongo caught what was probably the last great fall day in Central Park. Today he caught the really great first day of Spring. It was glorious to see the trees starting to bud and bloom and daffodils crop up through the brown leaves of winter. People were out and about and enjoying the sunshine and clear skies.
