Tragedy Viewed From The Pier

Scores of people gathered on Canarsie Pier last Monday morning to view the smoke rising from American Airlines flight 587 after it crashed at Belle Harbor, Queens, just across Jamaica Bay. Onlookers also saw military jet aircraft protectively patrolling the skies above our communities. All 260 aboard the airliner were killed, as well as at least five people on the ground, and scores of residents were injured.
