Waiting in line at the cab stand in front of Port Authority I took this picture to send a friend as a kind of Wish You Were Here post card. I wasn’t focusing on anything particular. I was just trying to quickly capture a sense of the street scene I was part of at that moment. It wasn’t until I’d put the camera away, burying it at the bottom of my briefcase, that the vertical blue-backgrounded sign on the side of the red brick building over there on the far corner of 8th Avenue and W. 40th really caught my attention and I took in what was on it.
A picture of one of the planes striking the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Then I read it.
Up top is this quote:
“We’ve not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes.”
The quote’s identified as being from “David Sanger, New York Times Chief Correspondent,” although it sounds more like it’s from a government or law enforcement official Sanger was himself quoting in a story.
Below the quote, though, it large, screaming yellow letters, it says:
Clearly, you haven’t been looking.
And below that there’s a bullet-pointed list.
- Near free fall descent
- Total pulverization of concrete
- Explosive hurtling of steel
- Demolition squibs
- Molten metal
- Traces of incendiaries
- Reports of explosions
“Total pulverization of concrete”? “Explosive hurtling of steel”? “Molten Metal”?
Can’t imagine what might have caused all that.
“Reports of explosions”? I would think there were.
This looks like a relatively new sign to me. Fourteen years later and someone’s still willing to pay to put this up, and down in the bottom right hand corner it tells who that is.

They have a website, but I don’t have the heart to go look.
