By Andrew Porter: Brooklyn Heights, my wonderful neighborhood, is just across the river from lower Manhattan, and about 1.5 miles or so from the former and future World Trade Centers. I took these photographs on 9/11. They have not previously been scanned in.
The first one shows the view from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, with many tugboats and other working vessels finding refuge under the Brooklyn Bridge. The second photo is from the Brooklyn side of Fulton Ferry.
