Ground Zero - World Trade Center, New York City
If you look backwards Ground Zero you will see this image reflected on Hilton hotel.Let's imagine...
Just to visit brings back the utter terror that the victims must have experienced, to see the childrens drawings to their loved ones can only bring tears to your eyes
Photos taken in December 2004. Three years before I had an opportunity to be on the top, on 110 floor!
We went to Ground Zero to pay our respects.
It was an easy walk over from Pier 17 and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Yes, the world trade center site / ground zero is a place you should visit. We stood there - silent, tears in our eyes ...
Was going to visit inside but unfortunately was'nt allowed, plus a company had their opening day so security was tight..Shame
this is how Ground zero appeared in may 2002
now it's quite different, but there is still a lot of work going on

This is ground zero. I tried to get the cross, which is the only real thing left to take a picture of.
This is another entrance to Ground Zero, they have different writings that you can read posted there.
This actually was in front of the World Trade Center buildings.
It was damaged as you can see, there is an eternal lighted flame there.
Ground Zero is a very sobering experience. It's interesting to walk along the fence around the church and see what words and items people from all over the world have left there.
The Winter Gardens have been rebuilt since they were destroyed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Shops and businesses are starting to reopen in the Winter Gardens and the surrounding area.
This is a piece of steel which fell from the World Trade Centre. It has been set in concrete and now stands on Ground Zero.
Deeply hurt by the 9/11 events, the World Financial Center has recovered quickly and is now a nice sight to lift your spirits after the gloomy and depressing Ground Zero.
These twin towers are no longer existing after the terror attacks at the 11th September.....it´s so sad! I want to keep this pic here as a sign against terror!!!
