Is that the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Museum at Ground Zero?
Yes as to Freedom Tower (one World Trade Center)
The white building at 9 o'clock is the oculus.
That contains the PATH trains to NJ and the subways.
It is also a shopping mall.

Attached photos are oculus at street level, One World Trade Center at street level, pools, and the 9/11 Museum

Beautiful photos, Bunk. I was there for the first time last fall (feels like a lifetime ago now!) and didn't have enough time to go into the museum so it's definitely on my list to go back. I was really struck by the new growth in the surrounding gardens, and the white roses placed in the names of victims to commemorate their birthdays stopped me cold.

Thanks Sue:

What are the things that are hanging from a line above the sphere.

The museum is well worth visiting. It's emotionally draining, especially when you learn personal details about the victims and their families.

It was an art installation with lines criss-crossed along one side of the site. Enlarge your view to see the explanation. :)

Here is the Westchester County 9/11 memorial called the rising. It's located at the base of the Kensico Dam in Valhalla, NY. The stones at the bottom contain the names of the 111 victims that were Westchester County residents. There are similar memorials throughout the NYC area.

Here is a photo of the USS Slater, a World War II destroyer escort that saw service in the Pacific . It's now a museum in Albany. Was in dry dock in Staten Island for repairs for a few weeks. The Slater is making the trip on the Hudson back to Albany and passed by Rockwood Park (just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge) around 5:00 pm this afternoon.The Slater was accompanied by two tug boats. An article about the Slater is enclosed.

The haze from the forest forest in the West has reached the Hudson River. About two hours before sunset the sun became a bright red ball that was all that was visible in a sky of haze

Yes, we have been having amazing sunsets since the smoke from the west coast forest fires have arrived here in NY.

Wow, I didn't realize the smoke from here ended up there.

The haze from the fires in the West cleared on Friday. Since then, we have had perfect fall weather: Brisk and sunny.
Some birds have started migrating south. Ospreys are soaring. Some hummingbirds are still around and haven't migrated yet.

Have the fires in the West been contained?
