America Under Attack
September 12, 2001
Hundreds gathered along the West Side Highway to cheer the buses and cars of rescue workers that entered and left the disaster site left by the collapse of the World Trade Center. Except for the sporadic clapping, the diverse crowd was reverently silent.
Dump trucks and bulldozers also came continuously in and out as rescuers sorted throughout the rubble and began to cart off debris.
