NYC Stories is an historical document containing stories, video and folklore from September 11, 2001. Following the attack, New Yorkers seemingly only spoke of one thing—recounting stories about what they experienced on that day. After several weeks passed, conversations began to shift back to everyday things.
Memories diminish over time and eventually disappear. In an attempt to record people’s raw and vivid tales, I collected written stories and 9/11 related emails. See the complete 9/11 Stories and Folklore Archive List.
