I took this picture of the World Trade Center and lower Manhattan exactly 10 years ago (07-29-2001) with my first digital camera, a Kodak DC 290. The picture was taken at Eagle Rock reservation in Montclair, NJ, which is about 15 miles from Manhattan and provides outstanding views of Manhattan on clear days. I was living and working in Manhattan at the time I took this picture, but I had decided to make a trip out to Montclair to take some pictures with my fancy new digital camera. I had previously lived in and around Montclair for many years and the 400 acre “Eagle Rock” has always been one of my favorite places to relax at in that area.
I visited Eagle Rock on my recent visit to NJ and discovered that a 9-11 Memorial has been built at the place where I took the picture above.
