Stand Still

Favorite thing After the deep impact on people's lifes, all around the world, of the Sept. 11 atack, things slowly start to recover... and even after that big destruction, some things kept even still, against all odds and nonsenses.

Fondest memory This monument was laying between the twin towers, and almost survived to the disaster. Now it keeps the memory of what happened, not far away... as people keep living their lives, not the same but toward the future anyway...

Favorite thing The World Trade Center (which Twin Towers does not exist any longer!)

Go to the glass-enclosed observatory on the 107th floor, or on the world's highest open-air deck 110 stories high. I did in the early 80s' and I have never felt so unsecure - my knees were like jelly and it was very difficult for me to move. I wanted to go back as soon as possible but I realised I have to walk half the tower to reach the exit - only one way out! I'm glad I found the courage to go there and be at THE TOP OF THE WORLD as this open-air deck was very often closed due strong winds.
The day when the World will never be the same again!

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 .

My first trip to NYC

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.

Ground Zero

Favorite thing The spot where the World Trade Center once stood is now a huge construction site. One street is kept free of vendors selling tee shirts, hot dogs and other mostly tacky items. There is a list of every victim of the attack who died as well as some historical photos of the site, construction photos and post 9/11 photos and tributes.

I had mixed emotions about visiting here. For anyone (American or not) who remembers that horrible day, it is sure to bring back memories of dust and death and bodies falling from the sky. Then, you see the construction and you're reminded that good people always rebuild and return to strength.

I wasn't too pleased to see people smiling and snapping photos of themselves as if to say, "here I am conquering another tourist sight in NYC", but then again, as time passes feelings subside. However, I can't imagine this place as being anything but somber as long as it stands as a memorial to that day. Maybe when the new buildings are completed things can return to some semblance of normalcy . . . maybe.

A good memory : Twin Towers

Favorite thing Sadly, the World Trade Center Towers no longer dominate the skyline of Manhattan Island.

On September 11, 2001, two seperate passenger jets plunged into the towers causing massive destruction and fire.

A few hours later both towers collapsed into heaps of rubble.

Many people were killed in this catastrophe including hundreds of firemen, policemen and rescue workers.

I would only say, that the memory of everything that was lost on that day, that they will never take away!

Fondest memory He who hates does not know God.

World Financial Center Building

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?

Fondest memory The NYC skyline. It's now scarred but my whole life was spent seeing the World Trade Center from different places around the town I grew up in. The trade center was the only building tall enough to be seen from 15 miles away. It was such a thrill everytime I saw it from home or when we were driving in to the city especially through the Holland Tunnel. This is a photo taken from Liberty Science Center in Liberty State Park (NJ) looking across at lower Manhattan. Several years ago, the most distinctive objects in this photo would have been the towers. Now it just doesn't look the same.

The site of the former world...

Favorite thing The site of the former world trade center now looks more like a construction site than a disaster site. However a cross formed by steel girders from the site remind everyone of the tragedy that took place here

Visit the WTC site

Favorite thing I am hesitant to mention this or put this picture on the web because I DO NOT want to appear as boasting. I had the chance to visit the WTC before September 11th. My favorite thing was going to the top of the WTC and viewing one of the greatest cities in the world and feeling like I was on top of the world!! It will be an irony of having a happy memory and also a sad feeling that I can never do that again and only remembering the tragic pictures that I have seen. I would encourage anyone who will visit NYC in the future to see the site where the magificent towers once stood.

New York is the world’s...

Favorite thing New York is the world’s premier location for art, music, theater, dance and all-around culture. New York City is one of the most ethnically diverse cities. Most of what makes New York so famous is the cosmopolitan Manhattan Island. Since I only „know“ Manhattan, this page is only about this part of New York City. On September 11th, 2001, the World Trade Center (picture) was destroyed; New York's skyline is not the same anymore.
