Not me. I was on an airplane at the time....

Made a connection in CLT heading to BWI when, as we were pushing back from the gate, the captain came on and told us they were holding us because of something going on in NYC. We went back to the gate and he asked us to leave the plane. We got off of the plane just as the 2nd plane hit. Someone came over the intercom and told the entire terminal to exit the airport.
Fortunately, I saw someone I knew and he had a car, so I was able to catch a ride. Hardest part was trying to get through to family who was aware I was flying that day.
