The Daily Need

The boat beneath Ground Zero

Sometimes when you work on a story there’s some great information you stumble on and  you just can’t seem to work it into the piece.  Now we have a place to share it — on the Daily Need. It happened this week, when I was prepping for the WTC shoot. I came across a few articles about the discovery of a 32-foot-long 18th-century ship found during excavation this summer.


A 100-pound anchor was located a few yards away as was a shoe and some spikes. Archeologists suggest the ship may have been used as landfill when bulkheads were being built to expand in lower Manhattan.  What an wonderful reminder of New York’s long storied history in an area that has been surrounded by so much politics and, of course, sadness.
