I'd never managed to visit the World Trade Center Oculus, and have seen so many thousands of instagram photos that I thought I knew the space. It is much much much more impressive in real life than any photo can do it justice.

The gridded window facade of the 9/11 museum and memorial is always an impressive view.

One World Observatory at One World Trade Center

I highly recommend visiting See Forever at One World Observatory at One World Trade Center. It's an amazing experience, starting with the elevator ride that shows you soaring above a rapidly developing New York City and ending with this spectacular sunset over all of Manhattan.

Tibetan Uprising Day in New York City - March 10, 2016

Ben_Hider_BH1_4484 Ben_Hider_BH1_4574_1 Ben_Hider_BJH_9860Ben_Hider_BJH_9842 Tibetan Uprising Day in New York City - March 10, 2016. I lived in Dharmsala for a year in 2002 - 2003 working for the Tibet Museum that managed the personal photography archive of His Holiness The Dalai Lama. It was a life changing experience, archiving and documenting the historic documents of the cultural destruction that was seen in Tibet since the middle of last century. I worked closely with the Tibetan Government in Exile and made many life long friends in the small Himalayan village known as McLeod Ganj. It's always a solemn reminder on March 10 and an opportunity for me to look back on that experience. It was particularly special to hear Robert Thurman speak this year as I have read some of his books, or attempted to wrap my head around the vast texts on Tibetan Buddhism that he has written.

Tibetan Uprising Day, observed on March 10, commemorates the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the presence of the People's Republic of China in Tibet. The failure of the armed rebellion ultimately resulted in a violent crackdown on Tibetan independence movements, and the flight of the Dalai LamaTenzin Gyatso into exile.

Tibetan Uprising Day is observed primarily by organizations and individuals who support Tibet such as Students for a Free Tibet, and is often accompanied by the release of a statement by the Dalai Lama. Tibetan independence groups often organize protests or campaigns on March 10 to draw attention to the situation in Tibet.

In 2008, a series of riots and violent clashes broke out in the Tibetan city of Lhasa when monks were arrested during peaceful demonstrations.[5] The events in Lhasa triggered a nationwide uprising with protests occurring in every region. The Central Tibetan Administration estimates the number of Protests to have occurred in 2008 to be 336.
