Remembering and Honoring September 11

22 September 2011 12:18 PM CDT


I’m a bit late with this post.  I comfort myself with the old adage, “better late, than never.”

I found the below blog post over at 360Cities.  If you never had the opportunity to stand on top of the World Trade Center, please click on and interact with the below panoramas.

I toured the World Trade Center several times.  My last trip to the “Windows on the World” bar on the 106 and 107 floors of the North Tower was in early August, 2001.  I had been interning at Lehman Brothers during the summer of 2001.  Lehman’s headquarters at the time was at 3 World Financial Center, just around the corner from the World Trade Center complex.  I flew back to Colorado on August 18, 2001, three weeks before the terrorist attacks.

The World Trade Center was a magical place.  I’m grateful I had an opportunity to experience the complex, the power, and the grandeur.  For a rough approximation please check out the below panoramas.
