Location on 9/11:
Cantor Fitzgerald | Information Technology Specialist

His family was from Croatia. Hers was from Guyana. They lived in Brooklyn and met on the floor of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

In the genre of "only in New York," Alfred Vukosa, 37, and his wife, Annette, 34, lived the dream. Their two families were nearby as well -- a dense, extended old-fashioned network of aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins that could be fully several hundred strong when assembled.

Alfred and Annette, along with his parents, Sam and Irma, and his sister Sonja, all lived in the same building in Kensington, Brooklyn. Annette Vukosa's family -- including four sisters and a brother -- were almost as close at hand, in Queens.

Mr. Vukosa, who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald as an information technology specialist, had to be at his desk in the World Trade Center by 7 a.m. When he would arrive home every day about 4, another family tradition would unfold: a walk with his two boys -- Austin, 7, and Adam, 2. "The children would wait for him to come," said his wife.
