News: 9/11 Memorial
On April 4th, 1973, the construction of the complex that was the World Trade Center in New York City was completed. Tower 1 stood at 1,368ft, Tower 2
just below it at 1,362ft.
On September 11, 2001, the day that marked the worst terrorist attack on US Soil in history, these the images show the pure destruction and
devastation in the heart of Manhattan.
Now, Ten years later, on September 10, 2011, we can reflect and remember the events that happened on that day. These are the first pictures of the
9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero, a site which millions once associated with death, devastation and abject terror but has now transformed into a place of
peace, tranquillity and sadness.
And it has taken ten years to get this far.
From Sunday onwards, Ground Zero - once a black hole of despair - will become known as the National September 11th Memorial.
