Wave Goodbye, Staten Island Ferry, 2000 by Roberta Fineberg is a signed, dated, titled on recto (front of photo in white margin) gelatin silver print in an edition of 5.

A black and white image shot on film one year before 9/11, the photographer captures a child's hand waving goodbye on a carefree summer day, prophetically or innocently, with the landmark Twin Towers in the background. Post September 2001 the Lower Manhattan skyline was changed forever - the World Trade Towers now permanently gone from the New York City skyline of the 21st Century. Fast forward 2022, Wave Goodbye has added significance as New Yorkers bid farewell to a challenging period.
