NYC Stories is a collection of historical stories, video and electronic folklore from September 11, 2001. Following the attack, New Yorkers seemingly only spoke of one thing—recounting stories about what they experienced 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 stories and 9/11 related emails.
