Home of the Brave
BY CHRIS SMITH
Firefighter Howie Scott was about to step into Tower Two when it began to collapse. He ran, in a hailstorm of glass and concrete and girders, and dove under a walkway. When he came up he learned that he'd lost not only many of his buddies but the man the guys called "God," for his omnipotence in the midst of chaos. Rebuilding his company -- it lost seven firefighters -- and the department itself will be at least as difficult as rebuilding the towers.

A tale of two Wall Streets: The brash, wisecracking money machine that closed September 10, and the humbled, hallowed halls of the financial district that reopened last week. For a country already on the verge of recession -- and now on the verge of war -- the market is the crucible of our collective future.
Mourning the Loss
BY JENNIFER SENIOR
In this city of grief, all are not equal. Some companies (Cantor Fitzgerald) lost almost everyone. Some (the law firm Thacher Proffitt) lost nobody. And while downtowners who saw the terrible fires still burst into tears days later, the mood uptown is much less fraught. New York's new communities of grief, and how they interact.
The Frozen Zone
BY STEVE FISHMAN
There's a chain-link fence on Chambers Street, young soldiers in camo man the gates, and David Bouley is cooking C-rations. Life in TriBeCa is getting back to normal -- but normal will never be the same.
What New War?
BY MICHAEL WOLFF
For many in this city -- and this country -- the grief and despair of the past two weeks is giving way to another, singular emotion: a warlike anger. Which is understandable. But are we sure we want to go where it leads us?
City of Lights
BY MARK JACOBSON
Desperate to talk about their feelings, their country, and war and peace, New Yorkers have taken to the streets, carrying candles, waving flags. It sometimes feels like Woodstock -- love and bongos -- until we remember what we've lost.
