This is a special series of posts on this Tuesday as we mark the 12th Anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States and New York City in particular.

That is the devastation of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. All the photos you see were taken on September 27, 2001. Two weeks and two days after the terrorist attack that killed over 6,000 innocent people and 343 FDNY firefighters. The World Trade Center remains were shot from Rector St two blocks down from Trinity Church and Wall St.
