    One of the Best

    Of all the books on the market concerning the events of September 11th, this book is one of the best I have seen to date. There are over 70 color photographs here and a small number of black and white photographs. This quality book shows not only the destruction after the horrific events, but also shows several photographs of the Twin Towers taken over a period of time in years previous to the events of September 11. 'New York September 11' will make a valued keepsake to pass on to future generations as a memorial to those who lost their lives, their families and the courageous rescue workers. There are true-life heros in the world and this book is a fitting tribute to their courage and love for their fellow man. Magnum Photographers have done an excellent job in portraying, in photographs, the unforgettable devestation of September 11, 2001.

    Magnum has captured the 9/11 we must remember: pure images of the raw horror, tragedy and togetherness

    As we have come to expect from the world's greatest photojournalists for almost sixty years, Magnum photographers captured September 11th in its purest form -- the raw terror, horrific destruction and immeasurable acts of brotherhood. They were compelled to run from their own homes, the safe havens they had previously thought of as far away from the wars and other stories they had photographed, to record these images in their own backyard, literally and figuratively. As thousands fled, these soldiers of photography rushed into the grim chaos.

    A visual memorial to the events of September 11. 2001

    This book is truly a visual memorial to the events of September 11th, 2001. The pictures in this book,taken by Magnum photographers, honors those both the victims and heros of that day. Proceeds the sale of every book goes to the September 11th Fund, benefiting the victims of September 11th, 2001. This book will leave you breathless.

    A Book to Look Over and Over Again

    I have just finished 'New York, September 11, 2001' for the second time - it is that kind of book for me. The first time I read everything - looked at the photography and felt sad. Then yesterday, I looked again and more appreciated the 'story' that was there for us. As the photographers tell us in each their own words - 'our work tells the story' - and it does. For that we have to be most thankful. It is a book that needs looking over and over again. As it happens with a classic book, each time you read it - and in this instance see - there will be another message for you - i.e., this time I really took notice of the man with the small hammer, the people with the haunted look, the ones looking for something and then the story about the one that was looking for what they 'were investing in'. And then, finally, the magnificent Towers as they were! Truly a book to keep and give to our next generation.
