Freedom Takes Wing ...



"Freedom lies in being bold."
                            ~ Robert Frost
                              ~ 1874-1963
                ~ Poet Laureate of the United States
                                 ~ 1958-1959

Like a Phoenix rising, the new Oculus sculpture
that tops the World Trade Center Transportation
Hub in Lower Manhattan, near the Memorial 
Pools, brings to mind bold, inspiring wings
of freedom on a sunsplashed April day
in New York City.

The sculpture is the creation of Spanish
architect Santiago Calatrava.
