Out of the Ashes

Photos by Lincoln Anderson

Snapshots of lives cut short
In the days and weeks after 9/11, missing persons posters for the victims of the Trade Center attack were ubiquitous Downtown, particularly around the former St. Vincent’s Hospital. The hospital devoted a wall on W. 11th St. as an area for the posters. As time went on, it became a poignant memorial. As made clear by the fliers, the victims came from all walks of life, all races and all religions. These photos were taken on the one-year anniversary of Sept. 11.
