Thanks. No I didn't see any signs either at the site or in the literature.

Hi Chris. Was it difficult to get their permission to use the photo for commercial purposes? I know that, as it's a private site, commercial photography is not allowed without permission (in advance, they say) and I wondered how tricky it was to get the access.

Chris Lord replied:

I went when it first opened and there were no warnings or admonitions about using photographs for commercial purposes. They only were very strict about no tripods in the area. We had to go through metal detectors and I had a tabletop tripod in a case on my belt. The guard checked it out and said I could take it with me but not to remove it from the case. I have heard nothing about any other rules and I know lots of togs who have shot it. I am sure they wouldn't be happy if you turned up with an entourage and tried to shoot advertisements there but otherwise, who knows?

My humble THANKS to STEVE BRESLOW for graciously FEATURING this image in the group URBAN IMAGES

You captured it, Chris. Congrats!

Chris Lord replied:

You really have to stand next to this memorial to really "get" it though. The size and real "feeling" of loss is impossible to convey though a photograph I think. When you are there the fact that you can not see down that shaft in the center makes it appear to go straight to the depths of who knows where! An unknown that you don't want to know. I think they did a great job of site. Thanks so much for yet another feature in New York City Scenes Joan and for this nice comment, I am very grateful.
