These photos were taken the spring following the 9-11 attacks on our nation. Although we didn't go into NY City, we drove to the Jersey side and took the ferry across NY Harbor. The hands of the clock are positioned to 8:46 ~ when the first tower was hit.
This layout is based on the beautiful sketch from the MCS Dec. Big Sketch Contest:
