Back to work today, after a nice three day weekend in New York. The city seems to still be recovering, and I guess I can’t blame it. As I suspected, looking south along the skyline and not seeing the WTC made it seem like a different city than the one I grew up looking at from over in Brooklyn. I didn’t go down to the site, but I did get to see some of it from a distance on the Circle Line, that was enough to know how horrible it must be. In fact, walking past Engine Co. 54/Ladder 4 , which lost 18 men that day was enough emotion for me, going to the site wouldn’t have been any more real than the pictures of those brave firefighters who were lost. It’s something I will never, ever forget seeing.No tags for this post.
