While working as an electrician at Windows on the World, in 2001, Konstantin Petrov documented the banalities of the World Trade Center. Nick Paumgarten writes:
“Inadvertently or not, he left behind a ghostly record, apparently the only one, of this strange twentieth-century aerie, as though he’d been sent here for this purpose alone.”

My office moved to The Financial District last November; you can see the New World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial right out our windows. I have a lot of feels about going in to work today.
