Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the horrible tragedy that took place at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Now, a decade later, thousands of New Yorkers whose lives were upended are caught in a conflict between holding on to their cherished as well as painful memories and letting them go.

“There's never any closure,” Charles Wolf, 57, who lost his wife, said on a recent afternoon from a shaded park bench near his Greenwich Village apartment.

“But with 9/11 there can be healing,” he added. “That healing is remembering without reliving.”
