On September 4, 2002, I had a sobering privilege bestowed upon me. Ascalon Studios was asked by Charlie Kushner, NJ Governor McGreevey's nominee to head the NY/NJ Port Authority, to explore the depths of Ground Zero and come up with some preliminary concepts for a World Trade Center memorial. And so, on a late summer day - one year to the week after the Towers that once filled the airspace above were eviscerated into a fiery hell - we descended into the depths of this now-hallowed space. To follow are my snapshots of what was, for me, a highly evocative experience.
