"The Fall of the Wall, I" Berlin Wall Tip by NedHopkins

Berlin Wall, Berlin: 153 reviews and 313 photos

  The Wall at 2:00
by NedHopkins
 
 

At a little after 2:00 on 31 December 1989, the Berlin Wall near the Brandenburg Gate was as bare and forbidding as it had been for nearly three decades.

(US presidents from Kennedy to Reagan stood on a platform near the Wall, at this point, to peer over into 'the Evil Empire' and assert America's determination to stay in Berlin.)
