For the 15th 9/11 anniversary, the Stop & Shop one town over had a table near the front with "9/11 supplies." Red, white, and blue stuff galore, food and decorations, the latter likely recycled July 4th shit. I, difficult to offend, and largely refractory to 9/11 kitsch or sentiment, was offended.

I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan on the morning of 9/11. Friends and some extended family in Lower Manhattan so I figured why not. Got to City Hall and was turned away by NYPD. Surreal. Burned documents were still floating to the ground.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/10/17 8:30pm Parq:

Wittsend, a strange, said fraternity of people who lost loved ones that day. Few visual memories will stay with me like the walls of "missing" posters and fliers all over the city in the weeks that followed.

I'm a native New Yorker but I was in England for 9/11. I was so homesick, and listening to archives of your show over the internet really got me through that time! Though I still have not listened to your 9/11 show.

The aftermath of 9/11 was really weird: lower Manhattan closed off a la ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, the smoke mostly blew over Brooklyn for the first few days, so legal papers etc would rain on the streets of Park Slope. I took my son to the Natural History Museum on that Thursday, it was mostly empty, but open!

Also, I am now logged in. Anyone else at the Luna Lounge comedy show on 9/10/2001? I was! It was weird for two reasons: Demetri Martin did his act and part of it was passing out… AIRPLANE SHAPED COOKIES! They were a part of his act.

And more personal, I was talking to a friend of a friend and she mentioned something about working near the World Trade Center and how dull it is. And I aded, “You know, I have never liked the World Trade Center. I’ve never felt comfortable near that place. Can’t stand it.”

I never really expressed that ever before… Except that day… And then history. Jesus, Mary, Moses and Vishnu.

@GaylordFields: He does qualify. Billy Joel does indeed qualify.

Also, I remember the days after 9-11, walking out of my apartment on Atlantic Avenue, looking to the left and seeing that plume of smoke… And as others have mentioned, that smell… For days. Days of that smell.

Also, the piles of “Missing” posters on walls everywhere seemingly in every neighborhood.

The shuberts. Specifically, I'm thinking of the rich theatre, which evolved into radio city music hall

I remember being in college, and a colleague on the school paper sees me, runs up to me and just says, “Jack! You have to listen to this…” (re: “Three Feet High and Rising”)

As a freshman in college I took a colloquium class in the art dept. in which the professor would play music sometimes at the beginning as students came in, and Magic Number was the song on the first day. Very exciting. For some reason the prof pronounced it Der La Soul.

A lot to be proud of.

Thanks for this unique 9/11 show. There are certainly a lot of New York voices from which to choose. Also, nice to hear you, Amanda. I haven't raided the Simpsons Time cabinet in quite a while.

Was busy in the kitchen during the last hour, sorry I didn't comment any further. A landmark show. Well done. Going to have to go back and check Amanda's archives for previous installments.
