Favorite thing: I wanted to add the World trade centre to my NY page because it was an important part of my own trip . We travelled to NY in 1995 and so had the chance to reach the observation tower at WTC . I still havee my entry ticket to the tower and some great photo memories .
May God bless the many souls who lost their lives, on September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and on airline flights 11, 175, 77 and 93.
The courage and sacrifice shown by the New York Fire Department firefighters, the New York City Police, and other Emergency Medical Services will never be forgotten.
Fondest memory: Barack Obama, the U.S. president announced to the world: Osama bin Laden is dead.
Bin Laden in the 2011 World Trade Center terrorist attack and other U.S. embassy attacks
as the intellectual author of the FBI's most sought after terrorists included.
For years, went into hiding until he caught on May Day destiny.
The transmission number - still unclear - questions that try to answer: the special unit
is the number of soldiers involved in the action, to have started deployment, how they
got into and out of Pakistan without being stopped, would have, how identified bin Laden,
why it was destroyed one of the helicopter, and what really happened to bin Laden's house?
One World Trade Center, more simply known as 1 WTC and formerly known as the Freedom Tower, is the lead building of the new World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan.
The 105-story supertall skyscraper is being constructed in the northwest corner of the World Trade Center site, occupying the location where the original 8-story 6 World Trade Center once stood.
On March 30, 2009, the Port Authority confirmed that the building would be known by its legal name of One World Trade Center.
Once a towering symbol of New Yorks financial status reduced to a hole in the ground through the actions of Al Qaeda terrorsits now out of the rubble the Freedom Tower is begining to take form.
The WTC consisted of 7 buildings in Lower Manhattan with the most prominent buildings being the twin towers each a walloping 110 stories tall, in 1972 the tallest building. For those workers afraid of heights the windows were designed to be only 45cm wide thus giving a sense of security. The PATH train takes you alongside the WTC so you can see the building works taking place. Today there is a viewing platform on the crossing into Wall Street Mall.
A brief background into 9/11 although it is ingrained into peoples minds mostly. At 8.46am the 1st plane crashed into the N Tower & at 9.03am the 2nd plane collapsed into the S Tower. Of the 2,749 deaths 658 were WTC employees & half of that number were fatalities of the firefighters who risked their lives
Favorite thing: Johnzane and I did shopping day where we started at Century 21 and walked and walked and walked. We were intrigued by the windows of a building across the way from Century 21, so we headed in that direction after shopping there. Turns out it's the World Financial Center building. Great atrium, eh?
The World Trade Center had been a symbol of New York. I used to see it but never went up the observation deck at Tower 2 until one day in 1997. It was a cold day and the view was clear, far and wide.
Could see the Brookyn and Manhattan bridges, mid town and uptown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island in the south.
It is no longer there but the memories of those who perished in Sep 11 will never be forgotten.
whenever we read about the NYC World Trade Centre,
the mind whirls into action,
I have been surfing Pace Imagings website and had to borrow a phots of an ICON of the Big Apple City
for my memories of a building i did not manage to get to the top viewing fllor
Fondest memory: walking, watching, savouring
Fondest memory: Although they are gone from view, the twin towers are far from out of my memory. They were two of the largest buildings that I have ever set my eyes on. Going to the 110th floor was memorable as you looked down on the other skyscrapers of New York. You could watch the yellow cabs of the city moving like ants below you. It was quite amazing to be up there. Plus, it was the best place to get Broadway tickets as the TKTS outlet there never had any sizable lineups. I think the thing that I will always remember as how they dominated the skyline as you looked back at the city from the ferry to Staten Island. For anybody that saw them, they will never be forgotten.
Favorite thing: I believe this was around 1980. We were coming back from Hong Kong for our annual summer visit to the States. Earlier that summer we had stopped in Wales to visit some relatives who were living there and on the way to Minnesota (where my mom's family lives) we stopped in New York. As a kid who grew up in Hong Kong, the big buildings and fast pace were nothing new, but it was nonetheless amazing to be in such a famous place and to see such recognizable images as the World Trade Center towers that you can see behind my sister and me.
Favorite thing: The primary building of the new World Trade Center complex, the FREEDOM TOWER or officially, One World Trade Center or 1WTC, is a 104-story skyscraper. Its construction is part of an effort to rebuild, following the destruction of the original World Trade Center complex during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
