Shortly after the first plane struck the North Tower, my daughter called to ask if I had heard the news that a small plane had crashed into New York’s World Trade Center, tower #1. Her ‘heads up’ was early and sketchy, and not too alarming, …as these things happen, rarely, but occasionally. Soon however, I was enveloped in what seemed like a nightmare fantasy – grappling with my emotions and becoming increasingly stressed and overwhelmed as reports and images from the TV were now almost too surreal to comprehend.
Below are some photos captured from that day and a week later, as the impact and aftermath of 9/11/01 changed our world forever.

A follow-up from my previous post about the Brooklyn Bridge, found here.
Just off the Brooklyn Bridge, is the 40 story Manhattan Municipal Building, on the National Register of Historic Places. A magnificent structure with intriguing interior design elements complementing its Beaux-Arts architecture, topped by columns and cupolas, and …an impressive guilded copper statue: “City Fame.”
Back in 1995, I was fortunate to see these features up close, but as was typical for those days, my camera was out of film.
However, 15 years earlier, in 1980, I had photographed the Brooklyn and Manhatten bridges from the World Trade Center, as seen below.
