Remembering New York After 9/11

Monday, September 05, 2011

It’s hard to believe that “September eleventh” was ten years ago. I moved to New York City eleven years ago basically to date, and that event still remains as vivid a memory to me as ever. This anniversary is stirring up plentiful emotions for me, and I imagine I’m hardly the only one for whom this is true.

Olivia Giovetti on Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil

Saturday, September 03, 2011

On September 11, 1992, my father wrote a letter to his friends and family, entered the waters of the Massachusetts Bay off Revere Beach and never emerged. Because no body was found, I was not told of this until shortly before September 11, 1999. The time delay both harshened and dulled the news, removing the immediacy while nevertheless leaving a void one can only gain from the loss of a parent. I was entering high school that year, which added to the internal chaos surrounding this, and was still making sense of the news two years later when the planes hit the towers.

What Remains

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Eighteen years ago, with whole chunks of my address book gutted by AIDS, I attended the first Broadway production of Angels in America. I emerged from the Walter Kerr Theater, the closing scene still lingering in my mind, to face a bitterly cold February night and a sky brilliant with stars. For a moment, like Kushner’s lost housewife, I imagined every friend I had lost as a separate constellation, mapped for me, forever, in a private welkin.
