(UPDATED 09/11/06) Check out Bruce Henderson’s post above for some high-resolution shots post-9/11. ..bruce..
In March 2001 — just six months before the 9/11 attacks — Sandra and I took our daughters Jacqui and Crystal, along with John Hicks (soon to become Jacqui’s fiance and then husband), up to New York City. We did the usual touristy stuff, including stopping on the way up to take the ferry tour of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty and going to the observation deck of the Empire State Building. We did not visit the World Trade Center, but it shows up repeatedly in the photographs I took. On my many trips to NYC since 9/11, I have always noticed the gap in the skyline where the WTC towers stood.
