I have not been able to find the image since, but I swear in the weeks after
9/11 there was a photo getting around of a datacentre which was housed in
one of the surrounding damaged buildings and had a huge hole in the side of
the wall facing out to a sheer drop down.
Could have been a fake I guess - I have not seen it since then.
Anyone remember that or was I just dreaming it ?
