POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Almost everyone in New York City remembers what they were doing Sept. 11, 2001, but on the 10th anniversary many plan a normal routine, a survey indicates.

A Marist Poll indicates 97 percent remember where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Thirty-seven percent of New Yorkers say they will spend the 10th anniversary of the attacks going about their daily routine.

One in four residents say they will quietly reflect upon the day at home or at work, while 23 percent say they plan to follow the media coverage.

Ten percent of New Yorkers say they plan to attend a religious ceremony at their place of worship, while 6 percent say they plan to attend a formal ceremony honoring the victims of the attacks.

The telephone poll of 808 people via land lines and cellphones was conducted July 20-27. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
