The wonderful diversity of people is what Louise loves about New York City.

You can see the green reflection from the roof on the Empire State Building, shining green for St. Patrick's Day in 2003.

Louise took this shots from the Empire State building on St. Patrick's Day in 2003, the day we went to war.

It was a crystal clear night with this view from the Empire State Building.

'September 11th' by Seattle client/French American painter artist Isa D'Arleans.

Honoring the firemen.

The wall at St. Vincent's Hospital, around the corner from where Louise lived.

Louise shot this scene from her rooftop in Manhattan on September 11, 2001.

Louise visited this fire station in 2000, not far from where she lived on 13th Street. She never learned if they lost men on 9/11.

Lee showed Louise around his Chelsea station in 2000, just months before 9/11.

The reflectors on the firemen's gear stole the show on Louise's tour of the Chelsea fire station.

Brian the Fence Guy was passionate about his job in Central Park.
