a different tone for me.
This past May, I went to NYC for an Ace Atkins signing, bringing along my friends Andrew Carbone and John Ricotta. John works for Condé Nast out of One World Trade, and after the signing, he took us on an informal tour of the building.
It wasn't a dedicated stop by Ground Zero. We didn't pause long by the memorial pools, but it still made Andrew feel as if the attacks had happened days ago, not years. Like many, I'm sure, I have mixed feelings about the site. I wish the attacks had never happened, but the new building also attests to our recovery.
