9/11 neighborhood shaken by truck attack fears it's targeted

NEW YORK (AP) — For many of the thousands who live, work and study in the lower Manhattan neighborhood victimized by the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the notion that it might again find itself in the crosshairs of terrorism is hardly surprising.

Most days, they say, it is easy to forget what seem like existential worries. Then, they walk around the corner and gaze up at the new Freedom Tower and remember that for all the neighborhood's new wealth and cosmopolitan energy, for much of the rest of the world it remains defined by what came before. If anything, Tuesday's attack by a man who aimed his truck at throngs on a bike path is just a fresh, albeit horrifying confirmation.

Says one resident: "This area is Target A. We know. Everybody knows."
