The view from our cold water flat (actually an apartment on river terrace overlooking the hudson and beautiful New Jersey) is nothing short of amazing. After returning from a pair of concerts, directly beneath our 21st floor window were the remains of the US Airways plane that splashed down Thursday afternoon. Naturally, we ordered pizza and stayed up all night, snapping a few photos along the way. A video is certainly in order for the excavation.
Of course, the coolest thing is that nobody got hurt, (endless respect to the pilot), and so it is with relative ease that we can feel humbled. As ridiculous as it may be, an event like this is important in the way it brings people together. Our technology is not invincible, and accidents do still happen. I can't wait to hear what Barack has to say about it. Three days, bitches!
