Eighty-Eighth Floor Under Construction
Lithograph print titled Eighty-eighth Floor Under Construction, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts a view of the East River, Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, and lower Manhattan area as seen from inside the 88th floor of the One World Trade Center building during construction. The print is signed.
This print is part of a series titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center, created by 9/11 first responder and FDNY member Brenda Berkman as she documented the construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path through the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the subsequent months that she spent at Ground Zero.
