In the hours following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, The Gazette worked quickly to publish a four-page “extra” edition of the paper that same day.
The extra was a way to get information to readers as quickly as possible. It was before smartphones and social media. The Gazette had a website, but it was not yet the place readers came to regularly for breaking news.
Here is that section, followed by the front page and other coverage in the Sept. 12, 2001, daily edition of The Gazette.
