Boating on the Hackensack
Lithograph print created by Brenda Berkman titled Boating on the Hackensack. The print depicts three people in kayaks on the Hackensack River in New Jersey with a view of the Manhattan skyline in the background, including the One World Trade Center building. The kayaker in the left boat is the artist's self portrait. The print is signed in the lower right corner.
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 out of the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the months she spent at Ground Zero.
