Ever been to top of WTC as a tourist? Any happy memories on a sad day...

Jump to last reply

As a NJ resident I have taken out-of-towners (mostly my German relatives) to NYC a dozen times. My strategy was always the same...drive to Staten Island and take the ferry into the City. Not only do you pass the Statue of Liberty but as you get closer to docking downtown the WTC loomed over head in the most amazing way. Those Germans never saw anything like it!

The last time I was at the top I was with an aunt and 2 cousins from Germany. It was 1995 and we waited a very long time for the elevator. At the top, I remember walking around to all four walls to see what I could recognize in the distance. I remember pushing my face against the window and looking straight down...

In the days following Sept 11, 2001, while I was trying to get a grip, each of those German relatives called me to check in. They all really felt connected. My one aunt lives in a little German village. She told me that on the evening of Sept 11th the church bells in her village all started ringing and ringing and ringing...and the locals filed into church for prayer services.
