Manhattan's New Way Of Thinking

Two years after 9/11, it's lost jobs, lost bustle, gained humanity -- a city fazed, but moving on.

"New York in many ways looks the same today as it did on Sept. 10, 2001, except for that expansive hole on Manhattan's lower edge. The subways are packed again with people with somber looks... Yet New York, too, is not the same. The economy, though improving, is still struggling to recoup thousands of jobs lost in 9/11 and the subsequent recession, despite a nascent resurgence on Wall Street... The history of America is a history of moving on. New York may epitomize that more than any other city, in part because of the rebirths of the past and in part because, as a hub of commerce, it can't wallow in tragedy too long."
