WTC View, From Brooklyn, 09 September 2001

More personal than usual in this post. On Sunday, September 9, 2001, my husband and I were looking at real estate in Brooklyn, hoping to find a condo, co-op or house to move to in the near future. We attended an open house in a building that offered roof space and being the gorgeous day that it was, I had to take a picture.  Little did we realize for us this would be the last picture ever with the towers.  Nor could we have ever conceptualized what was about to happen two days later.

Never forget.
