Title

Loading Barges at Ground Zero [Archival Audio]

Description

Andy Stepon made these eerie-sounding recordings in December 2001. He was down next to the west side highway where the cranes were loading the WTC remains onto the barges to go to Staten Island. Andy used to stand and watch the scrap being hauled off.
