The thing that’s always stayed with me about September 11 is what happened AFTER. The media showed so many shots of the smoke plumes, the rubble, the sheer decimation that the rest of the city’s activities were never really depicted.
I walked around for about a week afterwards clutching my camera, trying to document in some small way what was going on elsewhere.
The thing that has ALWAYS stayed with me is that so many “missing persons” signs went up all around the city, but especially around the Lexington Avenue Armory. In the first few days, that was the center of information. It was close to my workplace, and as you would walk around, you would see the “missing” signs covering walls, telephone booths, anywhere they could be hung.
Each sign is a person’s life. And each sign was hung by someone who loved them and just wanted them to come home. And that’s something I simply cannot forget.
