Hey fellas, I would like to add my feelings on this. My wife worked at the corner of the West St and Rector St which is one block south of WTC. That morning she was running late to work and drove in. When she arrived she parked on the top floor of the Battery Parking Garage and went about her daily business. She worked for Advest as Asst Managing Director for Stock Loan. Her building was evacuated. When World Trade 2 came down my said that to escape she remembers stepping over plane parts and body parts, not to mention watching people jump prior to the collapse. She and some of her co-workers were put on a bus by NYPD and dropped at Grand Central Station. They we on their way to the trains when someone yelled "theres a bomb in here!". Now she had to get away from hoards of stampeding people. Long story short, I managed to see my wife delivered by NYC cab to my office in Westchester. Months after that my still went to our local train station to see friends autos parked in the commuter lot with flowers on them for all those commuters who never came home. I finally retrieved her Jeep covered in debris with the assistance of a friend of mine who is NYPD and was on patrol there in the aftermath as properties officer processing rings, wallets, watches from all the victims. To wrap this up, my wife still wakes up crying at night in a cold sweat from that day. How F***ing insenstive was that to fly a 747 over NYC and not tell anyone!! My wife came home tonight very upset.
