Wow, its been 10 years already. How time flies!! I still remember that day as if it was yesterday. As much as I love to talk, this is one event I don’t talk much ab on. I always wonder what would have happened to me if I came out a few minutes late out from the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel?
Here’s something I wrote three years ago. I wish I still have the one I wrote 9 years ago. Oh well. This one will do….
7 years ago around this time, I was driving a friend out into the city to her job because she was late getting up and needed to be in the office by 8:30am for an important meeting. At that time, I just got laid off from Clear Channel Communication, so my schedule are FREE. I decide what the hell, I got nothing better to do anyway. I normally do not take the Tunnel out into the city, because of the $3.50 fee. Yes I am cheap. HAHA! But because we were running late, she told me to take it and will pay me back, plus the drop off spot was World Trade Center Path Station. So it makes sense to.
I remember traffic were pretty back up. and once we came out of the tunnel I happened to look up and said “oh world trade center is on fire”. I didn’t think much of it at that time… but once the 2nd plane hit the second tower, I knew at that point New York was under attack. I am not going to get into details anymore, but I will always remember what happen that day. Many of my friends do work in those buildings or in that area. Just so happen that Tuesday, they all decided either to take the day off, or they were running late into work.
Here’s some photos of that morning from my camera.
