Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11 | Submitted by Janette MacKinlay

Janette MacKinlay, an artist and art teacher, moved to Lower Manhattan from California in 1997 and settled in a 4th floor loft at 110 Liberty St. Both she and her companion, Jim Lecce, were active participants in the Downtown arts and culture scene. As the events of 9/11 unfolded right across the street, Janette and Jim decided at first to “wait it out,” but the dust and debris cloud created by the collapse of Tower Two blew out their windows and forced them to evacuate the area. We are fortunate that Janette recorded this amazing story of survival and recovery as “Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11”
