In kita 9, window wall/aisle seat. Never forget. Horrible.. Didnt see the collapse as the rebbe closed the shades in the classroom
Bais Yakov of Boror Park elementary school didn't tell the kids anything.  They knew there had to be many kids with relatives and friends in the towers.  I told my kids when they got home.
I spent the morning on the phone with my sister: shocked and crying.

The wind that day was blowing towards brooklyn. Half burnt papers were falling down on BP streets.

I wasn't in town then but my family told me that the whole Crown Heights smelled like smoke.

In fact 3 weeks later, right before Sukkos, I had a flight into LGA (the flight was empty, 7 people and that's including 2 pilots, a flight attendant and an air marshal). And as we were about to land we were flying along Manhattan and there was still a huge pillar of smoke where the WTC stood.

The next day I got a letter in the mail addressed from "1 World Trade Center". It must've been mailed out on the 10th. It was very creepy

26:11 ID Tech must feel stupid for that comment :P

One thing I find really interesting is how quickly they knew this was a hijacking. I remember all the misinformation that we were told and how long it took the news people to acknowledge that these were real hijackings and that it was an actual commercial airliner which crashed into the to the towers. The ATC people knew right away...

There were different ATCs that knew different things. At the same time that Some were saying that AA11 crashed JFK tower called Teterboro to ask if they lost a plane...

The FA told them over the phone they're being hijacked.

I know, I listened to the recordings. Not sure why that makes the fact that they knew so early not interesting

There had been lots of hijackings prior to that. Flying into buildings was new.

Correct, and your point? Am I just slow today or there a lot of non sequiturs flying around here today?
ETA: ATC also knew right away that it was those planes that went into the towers (although they confused AA11 and AA77)
