Title: WTC Survival Stories
Go there: In this window | In a new window
Annotation: These nine survival stories are part of a website run by Douglas Kelley, which dispenses information on art and art receptions in New York City. It is unclear who the writers of the stories are, but at least one of them is an artist because his gallery show is advertised above his story. These stories range from someone who helped dig for bodies to a pregnant woman who needed to escape from her home with her young son. There is poetry on the site and stories of people who worked nearby.
Excerpt: I went back to the remains of the World Trade Center and dug for bodies. There is a staging area at Chelsea Piers where city staff determines if one has useful knowledge or experience to help with the rescue.
