Annotation: This is a personal story of a man who worked on the 24th floor of the World Financial Center, across the street from the World Trade Center. He describes his experience in leaving his building and the area of lower Manhattan. This site is put together by David Wertheimer and also includes his diary about September 11 and the days following.
Excerpt: I was at work when the two planes hit the Towers yesterday. My office, 2 World Financial Center, is/was on the 24th floor and faced the Towers from across West Street (the west side highway). I was at my desk when the first plane hit. We shook a bit in our seats but didn't know what happened.
