skyvettel said: Hi there, nice blog! Not to stir up any potentially unpleasant memories, I was wondering since you said you lived in the city in 2001, what something like the WTC was like. I'm a native New Yorker but I was too young to remember them myself. Thanks :)

Thank you. I appreciate it. To answer your question, it was just surreal. It was a beautiful clear day with blue skies. I had started the day early when I got a call informing me of the first plane. My first thought was, “probably an accident.” Then the second plane hit. Then after that, everything just seemed to slow down. Like you were living a dream. I was around 27th street (Between Lexington and Third avenues). People in the area where generally calmed with looks of disbelief and grief at the same time. If not walking like zombies heading home from downtown, people were gathered in corners listening to the news on the radio or hanging around local local bars to see the news. I was part of the latter. I saw the broadcast of the second tower coming down. I remember just sliding down the wall where I was standing trying to grasp what was happening. It was such as unsettling feeling to see that building where I had gone so many times come down like a house of card…Knowing my family was fine, I stayed in Manhattan until the afternoon before heading to Queens. By that time, the 7 train had resumed service. I just remember sitting on that train looking at people. I guess like them, I was lost on my own thoughts knowing something that was part of all of us was gone. Any other specif questions?
