  1. Oops, my bad LOL. I was so sleepy when I posted that night. I meant to say I was watching the breaking news on TV when the North Tower had smoke coming out of it.
  2. I was about to start my second year of college, and I lived in Savannah during that time. I woke up bright and early to watch TV when I saw the first plane hit the North tower. I did believe it was an accident at first, but of course, I was horribly shocked when the second plane hit the South tower. I felt a sense of despair and sadness at seeing the people in danger. My cousin who's an elevator repairman (and lived in LI at the time) was supposed to go repair inside the WTC, and actually his manager ordered him to go to a hotel to fix an elevator before everything occurred. It was a close call, but thank goodness my cousin avoided going there on 9/11.
  3. I remember that day clearly. My mom went to the Hub in Third Avenue to get me a new backpack and outfits for school (I was about to enter the 4th grade that fall). My uncle was visiting our house, and I think he was watching Channel 7. I saw the breaking news on TV and I was shocked to see the disaster at Union Square. I felt sad for the victims, and yes, I can't believe this crash happened two decades ago.
  4. Both my parents are from Honduras!
  5. Lived in: The BX Ozark, AL Georgia - Savannah, Brunswick, Valdosta (for college), and now Atlanta Visited: South Carolina - Columbia, Beaufort, Hilton Head Island Georgia - Macon, Augusta Florida - Panama City, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando (gotta love Disney World!), Fort Lauderdale, Miami; have not been to Pensacola or Tampa yet Alabama - Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile
  6. This was the summer between 3rd grade and 4th grade for me. I remember watching the news and couldn't believe the horrible images from the crash. They should've given this operator life in prison IMO. And whoever tagged that subway car for him to be freed is too stupid to know the meaning of life. :tdown:
  7. I like the current ones. Prior to coming to this forum, I didn't even know bullet colors were different back in the 70s (80s baby here LOL).
  8. I was in the 8th grade and I remember that Sunday evening watching Channel 7 and crossing my fingers wishing school would be closed. Then an hour later, Sarah Wallace (Channel 7 anchor) announced NYC schools were shut down for the next two days. I jumped and down with such delight. I didn't end up going to school for the entire week anyways because I used to walk to school regularly, and it was impossible to go through those mountains of snow.
  9. I like a lot of 80s and 90s music (pop, R&B, soft rock, rap), as well as a couple of top 40 hits from the last ten years. I also like Latin pop and tropical music. Can't stand country or heavy metal at all. I cringe every time I drive down Interstate 75 between Central and Southern Georgia and all I hear are like six country stations, in which case I play my Ipod instead of suffering through singers talking about their lawnmowers looking as fine as Megan Fox and drinking beer while surfing on the Chattahoochee River. :confused:
  10. I loved watching these kids shows/cartoons in the 80s: Romper Room with Miss Molly Zoobilee Zoo Muppet Babies Gummi Bears Alf Ducktales Garfield and Friends Kissyfur The Smurfs (of course!) Alvin and the Chipmunks Strawberry Shortcake (curly-haired, not straightened with a flat iron) My Little Pony (without the crappy bug-style eyes) Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers Punky Brewster (cartoon version) The original Kidsongs (it aired on Channel 4 back then) Pee Wee's Playhouse This was excellent kids programming. Nothing nowadays compares to the awesome shows from back in the day.
  11. You're correct, Grand Concourse. The and had green and black bullets during the Redbird era. Anyways, I was born back in 1982, and of course, there was still plenty of graffiti on the trains. My mom rarely took me on the subway as an infant and toddler because she was afraid of me inhaling all those paint chemicals, so whenever I had a doctor's appointment, we just took the Bx19. I didn't start riding the subway regularly until I turned eight, when the and were already Redbirds and the graffiti was history. I always referred to the R62 trains as the "nice" trains LOL. Ever since I remembered riding the subway, I can't forget discovering cool places like MSG, Times Square, Herald Square, Coney Island, and others for the first time. :cool: And EE Broadway Local, I never realized until about a year ago that the subway bullet colors were different in the 70s. I wish my Dad had a subway map from those days. B)
  12. I don't see my old schools there (CS66 and Rafael Hernandez Academy), but my cousin graduated from Jane Addams in 1983 and she hated it there. I remember my mom never wanted me to attend Monroe Academy because it was too violent and she felt I couldn't learn well in a terrible school environment.
