Remembering 9/11

September 11, 2023 marks the twenty-second anniversary of “9/11,” the horrific terrorist attacks on America that took nearly 3,000 lives.

New York Law School sits just blocks away from what became known as ground zero, the site of the former World Trade Center’s “twin towers,” which collapsed after being struck by two hijacked jetliners.

In the weeks immediately following the attack, NYLS students, staff, and faculty—eyewitnesses all—were asked to put their thoughts about what they had experienced that day on paper. These essays and reflections were compiled and published as Eight Blocks Away: Memoirs of September 11, 2001.

A PDF of Eight Blocks Away is available on the NYLS Digital Commons.  You may access it for free here.

If you would like to pick up a free copy of the book, please stop by the Mendik Library Reference Desk. Only a limited number of copies are available.
