Tuesday Afternoon in Lower Manhattan: Port Authority Police Bagpipers Commemorate September 11, 2001

At 1:20 p.m. we were coming out of the subway on Murray and Church Streets on our way to teach creative writing at Borough of Manhattan Community College when we stopped to watch and listen to the mournful sounds of the Port Authority police bagpipe band commemorate the dead of September 11, 2001.
Our class meets at the newly rebuilt Fiterman Hall, which opened two weeks ago, replacing the old Fiterman Hall, which was damaged beyond repair by the collapse of 7 World Trade Center.  It was very hard not to think about that day eleven years ago.
