    of the World Trade Centers on 9/11, and for about three days afterward, the sound of sirens put me on edge.

    But no: after the first few days, not truly afraid. Annoyed that Chinatown was blocked off, and that concrete barriers were going up everywhere: but that was kind of understandable, b/c we didn't know whether there would be future attacks.

    I never left NYC b/c of 9/11. I left, two years later, b/c my elderly father was afraid of dying alone -- and b/c I needed a job, and NYC's economy still hadn't recovered.
