Welcome To Lower Manhattan- Four Seasons Hotel Downtown opens September 2016. I watched for almost 4 years while this 77 story building went up right in front of my eyes. Yes, my view of the Hudson River has been blocked, but that’s a small price to pay for living in the greatest neighborhood in the world.
What I discovered while watching this building being constructed, is that construction workers have a VERY VERY hard and dangerous job to do.
I saw men balancing inside tiny baskets while welding in the freezing cold. They teetered on platforms when the wind blew and froze their butts off.
I tip my hat to the people (I think they were all men) who worked so hard to make this happen.
I took 1100 photographs and it wasn’t easy to pare them down into 5 minutes!
