September 11 Digital Archive



This is the view from my bedroom - at Gateway Plaza. I shot this series of images right after the first plane hit over the spam of about 15 min. I had to leave the camera in my apartment when i evacuated the building that morning.

How has your life changed because of what happened on September 11, 2001?

Its made me feel much stronger connection to New York City- i moved to NYC in 1994 from Toronto and lived across from the towers. After 9-11 i truly felt like a New Yorker

How will you remember the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks?

Its always a hard day - i still live in the same apartment, but its been great to watch the neighborhood rebound and grow - and now to see the site open again in 2014
