WTC Remembrance: A Personal Photo

We are nearing the seventeenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. On that day, I will post another installment to my annual series of remembrance.

Looking through some old photos, however, I have always had a special fondness, for obvious reasons, for this pic from 1999.

It was actually in March of 1999, with some pretty fierce March winds, and I was 40 stories up, on top of the roof of 22 Cortlandt Street, when photographer Don Hamerman took this photo for a story on Rand scholarship for The Chronicle of Higher Education, which focused attention on my work and the work of others in academia. It is a photo framed by Twin Towers that I will always cherish.
