Abstract

In the horrifying hours following the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11 , 2001, hundreds of thousands of papers snowed down upon the streets of New York City's lower Manhattan. The obscene blizzard left piles of paper three inches thick crushed against the windows of neighboring apartment houses. An ankle-deep mantle of paper blanketed everything nearby (including the cemetery of nearby St. Paul's Chapel, where George Washington attended services after his historic inauguration two hundred and twelve years earlier. Drifting as far away as Brooklyn, and out into New York Harbor, the torrent of paper from the offices and office workers of the twin towers bore silent witness to the morning's unspeakable devastation.
