On September 11, 2001, DJ and I were working and living in New York. My office at The Broadway Archive was located in a building at the base of the North Tower, at 30 West Broadway. I slept in that Tuesday morning, and woke to news of the attack starting. My office was cut in half, and I was first allowed back into the site 2 days after the attack to retrieve essential things that may not have been destroyed. Mostly remaining were part of computers (trying to salvage hard drives) but most of the archives were gone. Later I had several visits to the site to retrieve more. DJ’s cousin who was in the North Tower died that day, along with a friend who managed Windows on the World at the top of WTC 1. 2 days prior, I had taken my father to the building and took photos of him looking up the towers.
