AP Story Describes Condition of WTC Concourse

Dave Aiello wrote, "In another heartbreaking story, Shannon McCaffery describes the remains of the concourse level of the World Trade Center:"

One floor beneath the World Trade Center, in what used to be a shopping concourse, a clock on a jewelry store {The Tourneau Time Machine} wall remained frozen at 9:10. A ghostly Bugs Bunny statue stood coated in gray dust outside a Warner Brothers gift shop nearby.

Dave Aiello continued:

For those of us who passed through this area every day for years, this article's description of the condition of the concourse brings home the damage in a way that many two dimensional images fail to do. I bought toys and gifts at the Warner Brothers' Studio Store many times. I bought hundreds of dollars worth of books at the Borders book store nearby.

The scariest part of these places is that they are not really gone. They are simply buried under tons of debris. And the concourse, the stores, and the PATH station are the tombs of some of our co-workers, friends, and the rescue workers who came to save them.
