Attack on America: The Industry Responds
All IDRC Members 'Apparently' OK
Three Studley Employees among Missing in
By JACK LYNE Site Selection Executive Editor of Interactive Publishing
Three members of the real estate community are among the missing in the wake of Sept. 11's terrorist attacks on New York. Officials at Julien J. Studley (www.studley.com) have reported that three of the company's employees are among the 6,333 people reported as missing in the latest count.
Two of the missing employees - James Gartenberg and Patricia Puma - were among the group of eight brokers and four support staff that were housed in the 86th floor of 1 World Trade Center (the North Tower), according to Studley officials. The nine other Studley employees who worked at 1 World Trade Center evacuated safely, the company reported.
The other Studley employee who is reported as missing is Jan Maciejewski, an information technology consultant who was working in the company's office in Midtown New York.
IDRC: All Members 'Apparently' SafeMeanwhile, efforts continue to determine what happened to all the real estate professionals who worked in the World Trade Center area. The massive scope of the tragedy, however, has made definitive answers agonizingly slow elusive.
This week produced at least a ray of hope in the efforts by International Development Research Council (IDRC) to ascertain the well-being of members who worked in the World Trade Center area. IDRC staffers, spearheaded by Director of Marketing and Member Services Richard Kadzis (firstname.lastname@example.org), have been repeatedly attempting to contact all those members.
"The good news that we've found is that all IDRC members who worked in the WTC area apparently evacuated safely," Kadzis said. "Given the circumstances, we can't be 100 percent certain yet; but that appears to be the case." (Ongoing updates on IDRC members who worked in the WTC area will be posted on IDRC's Special Message Board at www.idrc.org/communicator/2001/special/reaction.htm.)
Listed below is this week's update on what we've learned concerning some of the real estate professionals who worked in the WTC area. We are listing only company names in cases in which we have been informed that entire operations safely evacuated the area. For some other companies, however, we don't have full listings of which individuals did - or didn't - safely evacuate. In those cases, we've only listed individuals whose condition has been reported to us.
We will continue to update these lists weekly as long as we're aware that some in the industry haven't been accounted for. We urge readers to contact us with any information on the well-being of industry professionals who worked in the WTC area and for whom we don't yet have information.
