Manhattan and Brooklyn photos. Ultradio photos of the scene. Too much mental fantasy today. I can't cover up my fear and terror with anger anymore. Back to reality. I'm going to try to not follow any more political topics and threads for a while.

i woke up today to a strange smell - the smell of burning wire insulation or plastic or something. after confirming with friends closer to "ground zero" i now know that this is the smell of what happened on tuesday.

i'm about 60 miles east, on long island, and the smell is everywhere.

The smoke was here in Park Slope, Brooklyn, for much of the first two days. I had to stay with a friend further north the first night -- I pictured it settling on the neighborhood as we slept and asphyxiating us all. Last night I went to the Upper West Side and it had shifted in that direction. A headache-inducing smoky smell, five miles north of the WTC. Later that night from an upper floor I could see it across the park, a long white cloud over the Upper East Side. It can't be a healthy thing to breathe. It is also a constant reminder.

You can smell it here in Queens too.
