Windows on the World

There’s a terrific post on Eater NY right now by Greg Morabito all about Windows on the World, the restaurant at the top of the World Trade Center which was destroyed on 9/11. I remember distinctly going there with my family the night that we saw Les Miserables on Broadway (that’s me in the glasses; I think my brother is rocking a better look). The meal itself is a blur, but I remember the breathtaking view and the pageantry and fanfare of the service. It was an exciting place to eat and a memorable night; no one could ever imagine that, two decades later, it would completely vanish.
