NEAL BOORTZ is photoblogging from the RNC:
Three years ago I wouldn’t have been able to see the Hudson River from this room. Eighteen months ago this room, and this whole hotel was empty. I wouldn’t be able to see the river because the view would have been blocked by two skyscrapers, and I wouldn’t have been staying in this room because this particular hotel was closed for 20 months to repair damage from the collapse of the World Trade Towers. Right below me, Ground Zero.
