After 15 Years: One World Observatory

9 comments
 This Sunday is the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorists attacks in New York City, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania.  On this day, we remember all of the Americans and citizens of the World that lost their lives tragically on 11 September 2001. Up to now, there are still eight thousand victims whose bodies have not been identified. During our trip to New York City in early June this year, we visited Ground Zero which is so different now from our last visit at least 10 years ago. When we first visited here, the Memorial was just opened and we had to book our timed tickets in advance and then go through strict security screening. Fifteen years later, the Memorial is more open to the public with no security screening but there are still police around. Ground Zero has rebuilt with the brand new One World Observatory on the 100th floor of the new One World Trade Center Tower located beside the World Trade Center Memorial. Nearby is the brand new Oculus designed as a winged structure by Santiago Calatrava. The rebuilding around the World Trade Center area shows the triumph of man over evil and at the same time we will never forget the event and the thousands of lives lost in that tragic event.

  5. Reading this post gives me goose bumps! Visiting the top of the World Trade Center used to be a tradition whenever I was visiting New York. I enjoyed going up the new One World Trade Center, I loved the moment when you get there and the curtains go up. But as enjoyable as it was, the past can never be forgotten and returning to the site, even in the future, will always be an emotional experience for me.

  8. I bet it's something to see! Just looking at through pictures or on tv just brings solemness to my heart. No matter how many years go by, there's a sadness.
