Raices: Iglesia de la Trinidad, Manhattan(Roots:Trinity Church, Manhattan)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The history tells that during the 11 sept terrorist attack to WTC, when the buildings fell, a big sycamore was damaged and its roots exposed. Curiously, does' nt damaged the church and a lot of tombs around. An artist reproduce the roots of the sycamaore and put the statue at the side of the church. Lot of pain to see the pictures of the fireman dead , no pictures, lot of admiration and respect. A tear goes down when you meet this area

La Historia dice que durante el ataque terrorista del 11 de Sept, con la caida de las Torres, un gran sicamoro cayó dejando expuestas sus raices, no se sabe como no dañó la iglesia ni ninguna de las tumbas aledañas. Un artista se inspiró en esta historia para crear esta escultura. Mucha pena y dolor al ver las fotos de los bomberos caídos en acción en esta zona, es imposible no soltar unas lagrimas. No tomé fotos de la zona zero por respeto y admiración¡¡
