Some extra-curricular activities prior to the basketball tourney allowed me to capture a few of these images. The Teardrop Memorial was given by the Russian people in response to 9/11 and the horrors of terrorism. The skyline of New York City was taken from the park in New Jersey where the memorial is located. From this vantage point, you can see Statue of Liberty to the left, the Freedom Tower at the 1/3 mark from the left, and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges to the right.
