September 11, 2001, NYC. Four US airplanes were hijacked by members of the Islamic extremist group Al Qaeda with the intent of carrying out suicide missions to US locations in Washington DC & New York City. Two of the planes were flown into the Twin Towers in New York City, inevitably taking both towers down & killing 2, 753 people & injuring thousands more.
In the days after the attack 1st responders used the West Side Highway as a direct route to get to and from "The Pile". For many of us the most we could do was stand by and support the responders as they went up & down the road.
