Readerpix: Flight 1549 downtown NYC

1/18/2009:

Hoboken411 reader Eieio, who works at the Freedom Tower project – shows you what the scene looks like near the World Financial Center ferry slip in downtown Manhattan yesterday. The icy Hudson makes me cold just looking at it! Nine photos in total.

“Couldn’t stick around long enough to see the plane get lifted out, it was way too cold. There were a lot of tourists down there, seemed like New Years Eve in Times Square, instead of watching a ball drop it was a plane going up. Picture 4 has a little ducky swimming around pitching in with the recovery effort. Haha!”

“I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for’em. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to downer–and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.

I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, “Well look at this atrocity,” well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.”
