On September 11th 2010, people in New York City and all over the world took time to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks which killed nearly 3000 persons in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania nine years ago. But this year, 9/11 was not just a day for commemoration and mourning in New York City. An increasing number of American started questioning the official report on those attacks and request the truth. Moreover, a polemic about the potential construction of an Islamic community center and mosque, two blocks from Ground Zero, has created religious tension, political division, fear and incomprehension among the population. This year, Lower Manhattan was filled with a mix of very different emotions and characters.
