From the series "New York by the bird"
On this day, the helicopter had for flight plan to hover above Wall Street (indeed, I didn't have good photos of Trinity church), with the pilot asked to stay at the lowest permitted altitude. Of course, after a while, bankers below didn't appreciate to see this kind of black vulture; we have to leave Manhattan. But before to be kicked from my roost, I was able to make a series on this Greek revival memorial (the Federal Hall, the small lego brick in the middle, with the colonnade). Just at the crossroad of Wall street (the road from left to right, almost invisible) with Broad street (from the bottom up). In this area thickly built (you don't see much of the sun, even in summer), it's a relieve to find this 1830's building so kitsch, made on plan worthy of Plato's antique Greece. You imagine the oracle in the heart of this sanctuary, with the Pythia predicting the future. It would be a good idea for the bankers around to use it more often for their own financial predictions. Question of reliability, it should be wise.
