I worked downtown.... Broad Street to be exact. Once the second plane hit and the lights went out for a bit... We knew it was terrorism..... We had to wait out the two collapses.... and could feel the rumble.... couldn't see or Breath outside... once it cleared up a bit some of us Jersey guys walked to the Seaport and manged to hop on a police boat to get evacuated over to Liberty State Park. Not a fun day.... A day I will Never forget.
The one part I remember most is the Smell..... I never smell it anywhere anymore.... but if I do... it will bring me back. The smell of Burning Metal and concrete... That's the only way I can explain it.
God Bless America!
