Photographs of New York memorials
This collection of twenty-eight photographs, taken by amateur photographer Doug Potoksky, documents the September 11 memorials and tributes in New York. Context:
Ten days after the terrorist attacks of September 11, Doug Potoksky decided to do something to help. He left his home in Massachusetts and headed to New York, hoping to use his skills as a professional chef to cook for the volunteers and rescuers working at the World Trade Center site. He never got the chance to volunteer but ended up documenting the memorials and scenes of New York in the last weeks of September. Potoksky photographed memorials at Union and Times Squares as well as those outside the firehouse of Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9 on 8th Avenue just blocks from Times Square, and the patriotic display of American flags across the city.
