The view from the Staten Island Ferry is incredible. This doesn’t even begin to capture it.
I’m making a round trip on the Staten Island ferry, to take in the view. Stay tuned for new Tribute in Light photos momentarily.
Even closer view of the source.

Okay, I walked a little north, and now I can see two distinct beams. Very beautiful.
People looking at the Tribute in Light.
Stretching up to infinity…
I guess they just look like one beam from this angle. They’re getting more distinct now, as the sky gets darker.
It’s hard to see yet, but at least one beam is on now.
Still no spotlights yet, but beautiful scene. Also, check out the Empire State Building in red, white, and blue at www.brendanloy.com/webcam.html.
The view from across the street.
A ton of people (this is only about one-third of them) have gathered on the steps of Brooks Brothers, across Church Street from Ground Zero, waiting for the Tribute in Light to begin. I think I’ll join them.
This photo speaks for itself.
Personal memorials on the fence.
