Ann Althouse's picture of New York on September 11, 2007
Ann Althouse is living in Brooklyn for the next year. This morning, she photographed Manhatten, minus the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2007. Six years ago, I was sitting stopped in traffic on eastbound I694, on my way to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, to work. I was listening to Bob Edwardsd on Minnesota Public Radio talking about an apparent accident in New York, where a twin-engined plane of unknown size had hit a World Trade Center tower. We followed events at work on a radio and on the Internet. When we learned of the second plane, we knew it was terrorism. Bob Edwards was eventually sacked for not being a strident-enough radical leftist.
