This special edition of The Green Guide New York City is dedicated to the strength and courage of the people of New York after the tragic events of September 11, 2001. We have chosen to keep the photos of the magnificent skyline, but have re-drawn maps and designed a new tour of the Financial District. The purpose of this update is not to forget, but to remember and be inspired to continually discover the spirit of this great city.
New York City, alias the Big Apple, city of promise -- and realized potential: where class and crass coincide and soaring skyscrapers are edged with dark alleyways. A city of remarkable feats: the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building. Of noble vision and vast public good: the UN, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library. Art mecca for the nation. engine of America's wealth. The country's most populated metropolis. The nation's first capital. Epicenter of the Great Depression.
