That area, as well as some others in NYC were nothing short of being in the middle of a War Zone. Things were totally out of control with no thoughts of ever returning to a civilized world again. I don't know how those trying to hold the place together did it. I don't mean the politicians. I mean those actually operating in those streets such as the NYPD, FDNY, and at the time "NYC EMS".
And those working behind the walls of every local emergency room or hospital, the utility workers who had to post a guard so they don't loose their equipment or even their truck, the 911 dispatchers who worked non stop as the activity never let up.
For the buffs, they took their lives in their own hands. Plus watching your vehicles and everything you had in them.
When leaving that area, it was like they opened the gates and let you out.
Yes Jammie, "R1SmokeEater", I share Mike's comment as well. And THANK YOU for that Vintage Video.
