New York, New York – World Trade Center

It has been 9 years and for those that lived through it…we will all never forget.  It is the 9 year anniversary of 9/11 today and let’s remember all of the one’s we lost in this tragedy.  I think we all can recall where we were that day.  Hopefully you or a loved one was not there.   My sister was working across the street that day and witnessed much firsthand.  Unreal.  She has some sad stories to tell.

I grew up in New Jersey and we would travel into the city often.   My most favorite thing to do was to get into Penn Station and head immediately to the Twin Towers and go to the top and see the city view from above.  This photo above was from my of my trips into the city around the early 90’s.  No digital cameras then.  Sorry for the quality…it is a developed photo scanned in.   This shot is from the top of the Empire State building looking across to the once beautiful view of the Twin Towers in the distance.  A day like this makes everyone stronger…and smarter.

  2. Thanks for putting this on, Pete. Nobody who witnessed this day will never forget and I’m sure your sister has some dark memories that will never leave her.

    Pete, I didn’t know (or remember) you were from NJ. I grew up and Queens and remember the towers being built when I was a kid.
