WTC 7 damage

UPN News Footage Puts Michael Hess out of WTC 7 by approximately 11:30

I have obtained a copy of the live footage broadcast by UPN 9 News, WWOR-TV, on 9/11, and it reveals that Michael Hess, along with Barry Jennings, seem to have been out of the building much earlier than NIST stated in their June 2004 Progress Report. In NIST's report, it places the two individuals' rescue between 12:10 and 12:15, but as can be seen in the video, which I have not the means to upload right now, places he and Mr. Jennings out by around 11:30, because he is speaking live on the news (via telephone with a reporter), at 11:34. The video starts at 10:37, and Michael Hess appears 57 minutes into it. The interviewing reporter, Frank Ucciardo, appears several seconds before. We can further estimate how long Michael Hess had been out of the building by reasoning that he was interviewed "on Broadway about a block from city hall", which puts him near the intersection of Broadway and Chambers Street. On Yahoo maps, the shortest route from what used to be the north face of WTC 7 on Barclay to that intersection is four-tenths of a mile. It seems reasonable to assume that it took no less than five minutes (and probably significantly longer) for Mr.

Wanted: Photographer who took this picture.

Simply, I need the help of the community to direct me toward the person who took this photograph, as it appears on

I am just hoping that I am a Johnny-come-lately, but I have been unable to find a source for this picture. Whoever answers the e-mails at has not gotten back to me. Does anyone know where this picture is from?


Going to National Archives

I am planning to go to the National Archives in D.C. (actually the branch in College Park, Maryland) to look at this

Do you guys think it will be worth it? It ostensibly has over 1,400 images. Has anyone else gone to see if there is anything of value in terms of new photographs, especially of damage to wtc 7? I don't want to waste my time and money if anyone can convince me it won't be a fruitful search. It does talk about the photos being of the "aftermath", but I don't know if that means it has pictures from the day or not. Anyway, any recommendations would be appreciated.
