NYC - Where will you be shooting on 9/11 ?

A few of us are debating about where to shoot this year's Tribute in Light. We figured we'd start a topic like this for everyone interested, for some to share where they intend to go, and for others to get ideas from the ones that have a location in mind. Between what it takes to travel, one's perspective on crowds, and the perspective/composition one might pre visualize taking away from the event (from up close or afar), there's many options.

And as a side effect, you may be able to cross paths with fellow DPR members (or have the opportunity to plan to specifically avoid 'em [g]).

There's two potential dates:

Thu 9/11 - runs from dusk through the entire night and into the next morning. The lights have caused confusion for thousands of migrating birds, trapping them in the beams, and requiring that the lights be switched off for 20 minute periods to allow the birds to escape. So don't pack up right away if it looks like it's all over.

Wed 9/10 - it seems to be a tradition to run a full test of the lights up until approximately 10pm. No guarantees, but the odds are good it'll happen again.

How to play:

It works the same way as the Weekly topic works - best done in Threaded view.

If you have a location/plan in mind, respond to THIS message (the first message of the topic). Others will respond to the message/location interests them.

Provide the Date and location in the heading, and any useful insight or thoughts about the chosen location in the message body (Capt. Obvious, I know). Maybe think about how members might recognize you, if that's what you want.
