Hard to re-capture the intensity of that moment, twenty years ago today, when the German wall came down in Berlin: 11.09.89. I recall being quite in awe, while in college at the time. It's only after visiting Berlin many times over the past decade, and visiting many of its historical sites, that I gained a much deeper sense of the city and its stunning history. Tonight in Berlin, they appropriately marked the occasion by topping a mile of wall-sized dominoes.
Here's a photo of a piece of that original wall as seen in a small park on 53rd St. in Midtown Manhattan tonight.
