NYCstories.com is an online September 11th memorial. Originally launched in August of 2001, this site was intended to be a place where people could share tales about the Big Apple. The towers fell a little over a month later.
Following the attack, New Yorkers seemingly only spoke of one thing—recounting stories about what happened on September 11th. However, after several weeks passed I began to notice that conversations were shifting back to everyday topics. Memories diminish over time and eventually completely disappear. In an attempt to record the raw and vivid experiences people were sharing by word-of-mouth, I hung signs around lower Manhattan and asked folks to send me their memories.
In addition to a wide range of 9/11 stories, this collection also holds some of the popular electronic folklore that circulated the Internet during the weeks and months after the World Trade Center attack.
In 2011, for the tenth anniversary of the WTC Attack, I uploaded My 9/11, which contains an hour of first-person video I shot in the streets of Manhattan on the morning of September 11, 2001.
