National Guard Sgt. Ted Enguziak tries to calm a crowd of residents of Battery Park City in lower Manhattan as they beg to return to their homes to retrieve their possessions on September 15, 2001. The residents, some holding signs with the addresses of their apartments, were evacuated from their buildings since two hijacked commercial airliners were deliberately crashed into the nearby World Trade Center towers on September 11. óReuters
