9-11 Walk Around 
Verizon, NYPD and FDNY

On the night of October 25, 2001, Verizon employee Curtis Anderson set out to walk around
 the NYC WTC with a video camera to capture Ground Zero from "ground zero".
NYC officials had just announced that the WTC site parameter had been cleared  of debris
 and the public had access within one block to witness the devastation first hand.
Leaving Richmond Virginia in his personal vehicle at 9:00 p.m. Curtis arrived at Ground Zero by 4:00 a.m.
After parking near the site, he took off on foot and circled  the now smaller sectioned off area
in darkness with a video camcorder,  recording the sights, sounds and movements  while narrating.

The loop-around walk took two hours, and was repeated again a second time during
the daylight hours.  The debris would continue to burn another six weeks.  (100 days total) 
" I recall the smell much like an electrical smell, like a  burnt electrical motor."

This video has been edited at key points along the route and the runtime is 37 minutes.  The video is in  Blu-Ray format,
 the sound is excellent, however the video quality is what you would expect in 2001 from a recorded VCR tape and includes
sudden camera movement, and some focusing issues due to poor lighting and/or close obstacles at times.
