Daniel Karas - Detective Sergeant PAPD
The World Trade Center has always been a
touchstone for my earliest PA memories. How impressive it was as a
21-year-old police candidate to be interviewed by HR and PA Medical at
the WTC. In my early years with the PAPD, I looked forward to being
assigned to the Trade Center.
My favorite post was the Observation
Deck, I never tired of that view. Even after 23 years, I can honestly
say I enjoyed going to work every single day. On July 4, 2000, my wife
and I were invited to witness President Clinton give the oath of
citizenship to a group of sailors on board the USS John F. Kennedy. The
aircraft carrier was at anchor in the shadow of the Trade Center,
afterwards we watched the fireworks from 110B. The NYC skyline will
never be the same.
