    This is actually kinda what I'm interested in. Is there anyone here who is from NYC and was there on September 11th? I can't imagine the kind of drama (for lack of better term, don't mean it in a bad way) the city must have been full of on that day.

    I know 3k might not be a huge percentage in the city but did anyone here have someone (relatively) close to them pass away on that day?

    I think the biggest tragedy might be the FDNY. You have to have a huge pair of balls to go into those buildings after the planes hit them and unfortunately the most courageous people who did just that are the ones that perished.

    I think Organichu stated that he had 3 people close to him that died.


    Ectx, those were some awesome pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    I was working in midtown. I knew someone from college who was in one of the towers who did not make it out. Some of my current coworkers were in the World Financial Center next door.

    It's really hard to describe the feelings that day and I can't even imagine what it must have been like to have gotten out of the buildings or had a loved one who died. I work on the 41st floor of a building in Midtown and last summer there was a steam pipe explosion that literally looked like a bomb had exploded in the building adjacent to mine. The entire building cleared out (all 70+ floors) and just that one experience, although in hindsight it seemed trivial, really makes you put things in perspective.

    I honestly think if I worked in a building anywhere above the 20th floor that I'd keep a parachute in my desk or something...

    Yes, I lost three close relatives (one of whom was in my household for a few years, like a second dad after mine ran out).
