The twin towers of the World Trade Center dominated the New York City Skyline prior to September 11, 2001. This photo captures the beauty of the buildings as seen from across the Brooklyn Bridge.
World Trade Center
On September 11, 2001, You might be remembering of the terrorists attack of the World trade Centre and the allied hijack of the several airliners and intentionally flew two of them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. These two monolithic styled towers, that stood 110 stories tall and had been a signature part of the New York City skyline since 1973, collapsed and crumbled into oblivion along with five smaller buildings.
911 Memorial Park
On September 11 2011, the tenth anniversary of the infamous attack, the 911 Memorial was finally opened to the public and it is accessible to public as well.
You will find it being in the plaza-styled memorial having two immense waterfalls and reflecting pools situated within the original footprints of the destroyed towers. You will also find here the names of the nearly 3,000 people who died in the attack are displayed on bronze parapets surrounding the reflecting pools.
Just watch here the plaza with its roof with a canopy of green leaves from a large grove of white oak trees, with the entry pavilion of the Memorial Museum located within the grove. All of it is within the shadow of the rising new obelisk of One WTC or the new Freedom Tower.
