Eight Years Later, Air Travel Still Affected By September 11
Yesterday evening, while we were out gallivanting around town for Fashion's Night Out, we passed by a store whose sidewalk sported those rental searchlights. We continued walking, until we noticed another pair of searchlights even further downtown, and that is when we stopped in our tracks. This is the pair of Tribute Lights for 9/11, placed in the hole where the Twin Towers stood up until this date in 2001.
We won't run through the history of the event again for you, but we will remind you that today's date still carries some weight when it comes to air travel. Use your common sense, arrive to your airport extra early in case of heightened security, and don't go around the terminal talking about how great you did at the shooting range last night.
In particular, we'd allow extra time for traveling through any of New York City three area airports: JFK, LGA, and Newark. The alert will be out for international travelers as well; so London travelers should be just as overly cautious, as well as really any large city with a major airport. This is one day when you really don't want to disobey the 3-1-1 liquids rule.
