I was working Downtown at the time. I came out of the Broad street M station at 9:05 am and it was literally raining glass, papers, debris-5 blocks away. We had no idea what happened one person said "oh i think the stock exchange was bombed" (we were standing in front of the SE at the time)  I remember thinking no wonder there is so much paper falling.  Then as I walking toward Broadway people were telling us what happened I headed to the office instead of walking one block over to Trinity St. to see the WTC.  When the second tower fell our building literally swayed.  We ended up walking home over the Brooklyn bridge back to Brooklyn. The debris was knee deep...I can still remember the acrid smell of the city in the weeks after that

I was in elementary. I heard at first from a friend that a small plane hit the WTC by mistake. Then I heard it was terrorists and that they have a bunch of plants that they hijacked. I eventually heard that both towers were hit, and that one of them toppled. From looking out the window in school I was able to see tons of smoke and what I imagined be a half standing tower.

Later that day I sat glued to the TV for hours, trying my hardest to digest what took place in the previous hours. I now regret never visiting the towers when I lived so close to them.

Was in elementary with windows facing lower manhattan, couldn't see the towers but remember it going from being a gorgeous morning without a cloud in the sky and all of a sudden it seemed so cloudy. Kids came in said that the towers were hit and that there were cops talking with the principal in front of the building. Of course I didn't believe them. We were dismissed early, I remember there was paper EVERYWHERE. Was glued ot the tv for the rest of the day. I think only ch 13 worked for a while unless you had cable tv because the broadcast antennas for the other channels were on the WTC.

I was in Brooklyn on the way to Yeshiva and saw all the smoke and papers falling... Heard / saw tons of emergency vehicles rushing.
Found out a few minutes later what happened, so I went to the roof of Derech Chaim and saw the tower(s) smoking away, I turned to a friend and said "you wanna go there"? so we went to the F train and got the last one into Manhattan before they shut down the subway system. On the way though there is one area where everyone in the train was able to see the towers, and everyone was wondering what happened so I said a plan hit the towers and the train just got deadly silent.
After we got into Manhattan they announced the subway was being evacuated due to an on going emergency.
So we walked towards ground zero, it was after the 1st tower fell as we were dodging ppl that were pull of white soot. We got pretty close when we finally decided its probably a stupid idea to try to get closer, we eventually walked back to Brooklyn over the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridge (I don't remember which one it was).
