Thanks: 216 given,
living through those events, and the aftermath, the worse, was more traumatic than one would think,
for one, those who saw the buildings being built in the mid 70's, now was sunshine and light on streets throughout Wall Street that hadn't see the sun, many times, even when it was overhead, which occurred rarely, due to the skyscrapers all over the place,
and the long shadows cast by the twin towers covered so much territory as to make its own weather patterns in lower Manhattan.
for two, the radio towers that extended almost five stories higher than the roof, broadcast signals for dozens of miles around, stopped, and have never been adequately replaced
for three, the changes to all buildings and entry, exit, visitor lounges and Tenant Board / listings (company directories, etc.) have all changed, and for the worse. You need proper documentation to enter most if not all buildings, and even then, it can't be expired, tarnished or have any outstanding legal issues (warrants, police notices, judicial bulletins or otherwise) or risk being located and captured. That alone may have been one of the best improvements....
of the two local or daily papers, when they published the death counts by circle size on the footprint of the building and for quite a few surrounding blocks around, it was highly disturbing to know that as many people died, quite a few blocks away from the building, even after having escaped, based on falling debris and other issues.
that nightmare didn't end on that day, that week, that month or even within that year,
let's hope we NEVER face another event like tha again....
