Title: Barb and Ed: Reflections of Sept. 11
Go there: In this window | In a new window
Annotation: This site is put together by a couple from the Bronx, New York. They watched the towers collapse from City Island in the Bronx. Included is a slide show with twenty-two pictures the couple took on September 11 and ten days later when they visited Manhattan.
Excerpt: We saw the second plane hit on TV. It happened only a few miles from us. We felt a need to see it, to validate reality. We went to City Island, a section of the Bronx due northeast of the World Trade Center with a direct view of the distant towers. Ed, Karen and I spent the five-minute drive listening to the radio, in shock over what was happening to our city, and later the world.
