Sep 10 - 9/11: Then and now — 18 years later
 

 
9/11: Then and now — 18 years later

Each August and September, as summer fades into fall, Yahoo News photographer Gordon Donovan finds himself in a familiar spot — snapping images in the area where the 9/11 terrorist attacks took place.

“I do it because I love the city, the history of the city and how we’re not going to be put down,” explained Donovan, who was born and raised on Staten Island and watched the twin towers being built from across the harbor.

But his photos aren’t random shots of the evolving downtown landscape. He returns to document the exact scenes of many memorable images taken by photojournalists that awful day in 2001.

“It’s fascinating to see how it has changed over the years, because it was just this big pile of rubble the first time I went down there, about a week afterward,” said Donovan, then a graphic artist at CBS News, who was at work on the Upper West Side the morning of the attack.

Today a memorial and museum honor the nearly 3,000 people k*lled. The area also includes a recently opened transportation hub, and there are other signs of development yet to come.

“Now you can’t even recognize what happened,” Donovan said. “What they’ve done down there is beautiful and just revitalized the whole area after such tragedy and brought it back to life.”

Donovan’s then-and-now project, he said, is a testament to the city’s strength and an opportunity to share the changes with New Yorkers who may have moved away over the past 18 years. He said his project also honors the photojournalists who took the original images on 9/11.

New obstacles have arisen, requiring some adjustments in camera angles to align with the original images. This is the eighth time Donovan has revisited the New York skyline to document changes since 9/11; each year presents new challenges as the New York City landscape changes.

2001 was a horrible year for me

Aaliyah's death after that 9/11
RIP to both.



You are not alone as the late great Michael Jackson said (rip).

That day will forever be burned into my memory. Was in 7th grade math class when we were told over the intercom to turn the TV on.

Crazy how some of the cats running around on this site weren't even born yet.

I remember I was in study hall in h.s and people started coming over to the tv. I was like w.t.f gown own hea I'm trying to sleep. And sh*t on the tube tv I saw 1 tower burning and the whole school stopped what they were doing and were watching the news. I wont forget that day, prob tell my fuwtcha kids about it. Now imagine those people who tried to run away but got caught in the mist of cancerous dust, imagine how they are feeling now some may be passed away.

I remember coming home from school, turning on the TV and seeing one of the towers smoking. Im thinking it was just a movie so switching channels and realise this is on other channels aswell so now im thinking, what are the chances these different channels are showing the same movie? Go back to the first channel and see what was actually happening.

Weird thing is, i dont remember seeing the 2nd tower being hit or them falling. But hours later a reporter standing on a rooftop, crying with ground zero smoking behind him is what I remember. I think that was the moment i understood why he was crying..

Let's never about how they use that horrible day to create a culture of collective fear that empowers the government to spy on its people and wage endless worthless wars paid for by a nearly trillion-a-year defense budget.

Lets also never forget Operation Able Danger, where the FBI trailed (handled) the 9/11 hijackers for years which the 9/11 Commission criminally omitted:
