For nearly 10 years, The New York Times has reported on the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and the subsequent local and global effects of the worst terrorist attacks ever to occur on American soil. Now, with the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks a few months away, we want to hear from you.
During several days this summer, journalists on our multimedia team will be stationed at locations around New York and the region with video cameras, ready to record your thoughts about Sept. 11. Our purpose is to answer the question: What did you learn from 9/11?
The first stop we’ll be making, on Thursday, June 30, is at the Journal Square PATH station on Kennedy Boulevard between Pavonia and Sip Avenues in Jersey City. We will be there for two hours, from 4 to 6 p.m. You will see our small camera crew and a blue, rectangular flag with the logo of The New York Times on it.
The short interviews (about five minutes each) we conduct with you will be used in a video story that will accompany our 10th anniversary coverage of Sept. 11 on NYTimes.com. If you can’t make it this time, please spread the word to others who might want to participate. And there will be other chances to have your say this summer, in other locations around New York. Stay tuned.
