9.30 am -- This was the view from our living room window in Brooklyn, looking west to Manhattan, about 20 minutes after the second strike. It seems hard to believe now, but I didn't realize anything had happened until I was leaving for work. I walked into the bedroom to turn off the radio and heard the announcer say something about an airplane hitting a building. I turned on the TV and saw an image of the World Trade Center, turned my head and saw the same image out the window.
