- - Summary: Nilson Rosado, a native of Santo Domingo, worked near the World Trade Center as a concierge when the September 11 terrorist attacks occurred. He heard a loud crash which he thought was a missile. He stood at his post under the falling debris where the street filled with ash and people fled the scene. He aided a woman separated from her daughter. He watched rescue workers mobilized as the streets filled with police, firefighters and ambulances. It took hours to walk home to the Bronx. Now, he is vigilant during his commute and describes the nightlife of New York as quiet. He sees a more united America, but fears Latinos will suffer from tighter emigration restrictions and more difficulty gaining citizenship.
