New York. 9/11. Remembering.

Sep 11, 2011

Ten years ago to this moment, I lived downtown Manhattan, worked in Wall Street, and saw the second plane hit the second tower of the World Trade Center thinking, that’s it. it’s the end of the world. It truly marked the end of a carefree era. From that point on, there would be a before and an after September 11th 2001. New York for a long while felt hurt, bleeding, struggling to regain its identity.

And it rebounded. Because despite the critics, New York will always be New York. One of the greatest cities on this planet.

 

Robin, this one is for you x

I have lived New York with, and without children. Before, and after. Partying, and breastfeeding. It’s a fascinating place whether you’re single, on a romantic getaway, with a big family, on a shopping trip, with teenagers, a single mother. There’s really something for everyone. Last year Katherine from Wovenplay shared her Best of New York on BozAround. Read it here for great insider’s advice. I’ll be sure to post more interviews soon.

I love you New York. I really do.

    I was also living in lower Manhattan and saw the second plane hit the tower. Thanks for this post, I feel the same way about NYC, even though we moved away this year after 15 years there it will always be my city.

    Beautifully said Vanessa. And remembered. I’m not a native New Yorker but I love the city as well. I love how hope and strength keeps New Yorkers moving forward.
