In a deserted Times Square, retired postal worker Ron Wasserman, 61, recalls how 10 years ago, the streets of Staten Island across the Hudson River were filled with pieces of burnt office paper, falling through the air like confetti.

Three people he knew died that day, he says with a tear in his eye, and the country instantly changed.

"We are so security-conscious now. It's way over the top and yet it's necessary."

The country also feels more vulnerable, he says. He and his wife and have not flown since 9/11.

"The anniversary is just a chronological mark. It should be commemorated and we will never forget it, but I hope we won't dwell on it."

The moment of silence at 08:46 was observed by a couple of hundred people in Times Square, mostly tourists, although the morning traffic on 7th Avenue meant it was anything but quiet.
