As promised, I'm going to make a real effort to write one history post per week in 2009. I will publish one each Wednesday.
Here is the tease for this Wednesday's upcoming post.
6:00am. The World Trade Center.
You exit the subway, walk over to Broadway and make the left onto Wall Street at Trinity church, noting the labyrinth and graveyard where eventually, you'll spend some time.
You pass the NYSE and across from it, the old Federal Reserve building with the heroic statue of George Washington. It begins to rain and you're hungry. You enter the atrium of the JP Morgan building which stands further down Wall Street, to seek shelter.
This is where you'll spend every morning for the next couple of years.
