Whenever I'm in NYC I make it a point to make at least a brief visit to Ground Zero.On one such trip we ate at the Burger King that was,basically,right across the street from the WTC.After eating we took a stroll down that side street and came upon a small fire station.It was a nice day so there were several firemen just hanging out in front of the station.We got to talking to them and they told us that their station lost something like a half dozen guys on 9/11 (can't recall the exact number).
