The first picture below was taken in the summer of 1998 on the roof
old building in the Village. The world trade center is in the background.
note the mural of the "circle of dancing cats" to her
right. This was donated
by a local artist who painted two series of cat pictures
over a period of a
few years. As you'll see in the after picture below (taken
on 9/11), its now
unfortunately covered with an ad. Note that the number
7 building is still
standing in the picture below; it collapsed shortly after
the picture was taken.
