DescriptionThis shot shows Federal Hall in New York City. The site of Federal Hall, located on Wall Street, is where George Washington took the oath of office as the first President in 1789 and was also the site of the first Congress, Supreme Court and Executive Branch offices. The original Federal Hall structure was demolished in 1812 and was replaced with this structure in 1842. This picture was taken during a gray, snowy day, and my processing attempted to keep that feeling.
