Every day, all day long, these double decker tourist buses drive around Manhattan, with some guy on the top with a microphone explaining the sites. It’s kinda weird. Anything having to do with 9/11 gets a lot of attention. They especially like the corner across from St. Vincent’s Hospital (where they waited to treat the survivors who never came). People started putting up tiles on a fence to honor the victims and now the fence is packed with tiles.
I have to admit I always feel a little self-conscious when they go by and I’m in my crappy gym outfit. I almost want to explain. “I can look better than this. Really.”
Here is the Incredible Hulk (Edward Norton, why??) protecting the visitors. “Don’t hurt them, poorly attired New Yorkers! Roar!”
