From the foreword: "New York Law School stands in the middle of Tribeca, eight blocks north of the site of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. Tuesday, September 11, 2001, the third week of the semester, was sunny and mild...In the weeks immediately after the attack, students, staff, and faculty were asked to put their thoughts on paper. For some, writing was cathartic; others found it an impossible assignment. What follows is a record of that day and the days that followed by all who chose to write, a record of a time when grief, of this community, was universal, of a unique moment that must never be forgotten."
Originally published in 2002, Eight Blocks Away, was reprinted in 2011 in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center.
