That this green icon dominating our harbor came as a gift to us from the people of France . . . astounds me. Here Liberté greets Gramma Lee T and a Virgin Atlantic plane simultaneously.
This astounding gift from the people of France lives on and on. All of which leads me to this . . . wouldn’t it be just super if people of another country decided to . . . as did the people of France … make us a gift of a really tall observation tower? Just think of all the great harbor shots to be taken from a 1500-foot tower along the KVK . . . I’d just love it. Somewhere, we must have grateful friends willing to do this, shouldn’t we? Might the Emiratis give us a Burj of our own atop Todt Hill ? Maybe the Chinese could gift us with an Occidental Pearl Tower on Bay Ridge? We must have friends like the French people of a century and a half ago somewhere.
