    Sunrise over Manhattan September 12 2001

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DJholland007, a musician from Flemington, New Jersey, was thinking about taking a hit single to producers in New York City when September 11 happened. Manhattan was pretty closed off that day and he wished he could get onto the island and help. Instead, he drove along the Hudson River on the Jersey side and stayed on the shore until sunrise the next day. He snapped this photograph on the morning of September 12, 2001, with a Kodak disposable camera. 'I think the sun rising was a big thing too because it was like, 'Wow we got through that day,'' he said.

    I was trying to find something positive that morning. I took this picture standing across the Hudson River in New Jersey.
