Some rough clips I shot with my cell phone at Ground Zero last night, between 1 to 3 a.m.
The crowd sings the Star Spangled Banner.
A soldier climbs a traffic light and leads the crowd in chanting U.S.A., U.S.A. That traffic light was used a lot last night — it was just about the only place someone could get high enough to command the attention of the crowd. (A few people also sat on a phone booth further down the block to get a view of the scene.)
Another clip of the man playing bagpipes, along with the crowd eventually starting another U.S.A. chant.
Bagpipers playing Amazing Grace, while crowd sings along.
