Annotation: He was at work at Lehman Brothers IT headquarters on the 40th floor of the World Trade Center when the plane hit. When he reached the mezzanine level of the building, he realized how bad the situation was when he saw the windows covered in blood from the bodies falling from the upper floors. He goes on to describe the scene as he and his colleagues left Manhattan for Brooklyn. This BBC online website also has links to the details of the four hijackings, a short synopsis of the World Trade Center disaster, photographs of the disasters, a list of the Twin Towers tenants, and a timeline of events.
Excerpt: It was a beautiful morning. It was the first day in months I was able to wear a suit without overheating. The brownstones in Brooklyn looked great, the air was fresh, and the people were all out either going to vote or walking their dogs.
