Crash outside our window
Thu Jan 15 2009
Our offices are at 37th Street and Tenth Avenue. From our windows, we can see the Hudson from midtown all the way down to the Statue of Liberty. Many of our staffers saw the plane go down and snapped shots of it.
We send out best wishes to those in the plane and their families. We'll keep you posted as news develops on the tragedy, as well as how the crash is affecting the area, what streets are closed, etc.
Rescue boats surround wreckage.
More photos after the jump.
The current is dragging the plane 20 blocks in 20 minutes.
A flock of birds? Really?
Wow, they do float. (Photo: Caroline Voagen Nelson)
