Neighborhood: News

With the approaching anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we would like to invite our readers to share their memories and reflections on the tragedy and its impact on life in New York City.

While we welcome all stories from returning and first-time writers alike, we’d especially like to hear from those of you who had pieces published on the site directly in the wake of the tragedy. What has the space of the last decade meant to you? What has changed since your first piece appeared on the site? Please let us know.

To submit stories, click “Tell Mr. Beller A Story” at the top of the page or just click here.

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, September 7.

    I will never forget where I was the exact moment my phone rang and at the other end of the line was my friend telling me to turn the TV on. I sat there is disbelief for hours watching this story live with CNN. How could this happen to us – a strong country in this day in age I thought to myself. For years this changed the way that we live and looked at life. The way we look at faces when we board a plane, the way we look at strangers at a tourist attraction. Our lives will be forever altered by this event.
