Today’s Daily News profiles Kensington resident Susan Budgell, who was working in downtown Manhattan on September 11, 2001, and who
goes to the Promenade to pay her respects on 9/11 anniversaries because it’s too wrenching to return to Lower Manhattan. From Brooklyn Heights’ shoreline she gets a sense of perspective — and just enough distance to be able to pray.
The Daily News article quotes Brooklyn Heights residents Mel Issen, 86, who clearly remembers the event, and Adam Kemmerer and his wife Chasi, who will go to the Promenade in the morning for silent prayer and tribute.
It also notes that Christian, Jewish, and Muslim clerics will conduct a candlelit service at the Montague Street entrance starting at 7:30 p.m.
