Take a look at my 9/11 Remembered article that I wrote last year for the 3rd-year anniversary while attending a memorial service at Ground Zero.
I'm so glad that I do not have to go to such an up-close event again. Just reading over it takes me back to the raw emotion that I witnessed. I also felt like a real shit for intruding on the moment. You'll notice I didn't quote people who lost direct family members, I just couldn't approach them and interfere with their grief.
From my fire escape you can see the honorary lights representing the towers, but from this angle, directly north, it looks like one light and not two. You used to be able to see the real towers from this window though. After 9/11, before I lived at this address, my landlord couldn't come back to the apartment for several weeks since many of the buildings below 14th Street were off limits until the dust settled and debris cleared.
