9.11 and after

Sept. 15
At a firehouse on the Upper West Side. There was a mound of flowers in front. A stream of people came by to drop things off for the families of the firemen.

My girlfriend and I bought a bag of snacks and supplies for the rescue workers, then had trouble finding anyone who would accept them. The Red Cross headquarters on the Upper West Side was only taking monetary donations. We left the bag at the firehouse.
