September 11, 2001: A Record of Tragedy, Heroism, and Hope

Synopsis
In this new book from Abrams, images and words of prominent New Yorkers, including Mayor Guiliani, firefighters, police, and construction workers, chronicle the worst disaster in the country's history. Color photos record grief, rage, and patriotism, and display many memorials created by private citizens, at hospitals, parks, firehouses, and in the streets., On the morning of September 11, 2001, two hijacked airplanes destroyed New York's World Trade Center. Thus began the extraordinary story of a great city coping with the worst disaster in its history. As shock and amazement gave way to grief for the victims and their families, New Yorkers also reached deep inside themselves to discover a sense of civic nobility, exemplified by the heroism of firefighters, the police, and rescue units. Using the images of many superb photographers who covered the city during these dramatic days and the words of prominent New Yorkers, including especially Mayor Giuliani, the editors of New York magazine provide a visual record of the city in the week after the attack. It begins with the event itself and the panic and chaos it caused, and it goes on to chronicle the rescue and excavation efforts by firemen, policemen, and construction workers at Ground Zero and the actions of the city's leaders to maintain morale. It registers a vast emotional upheaval of grief, rage, and patriotism and documents the many memorials created by private citizens, at hospitals, squares, firehouses, and in the streets. The impetus to publish this record of events came about
