New World Trade Center

New World Trade Center

Here is the New World Trade Center viewed from Battery Park. The Freedom Tower (Center) replaces the twin towers that were destroyed on 9/11/2001. This is still a work in progress to be completed in a couple years.

Hope you were nowhere near when that terrible tragic event happened Bathgate, makes me go cold remembering it, bet everyone can remember where they were that day, we'd just moved into our new house and the kitchen fitter was here when it came on the radio, couldn't believe it.

Thanks Simbad. I lived through it and witnessed the death of thousands of people. It was worse than a nightmare.

I didn't like to ask where you were at the time is still quite a raw subject for everyone,especially for those of you who were in the midst of it..I can't begin to imagine how it really was...We were just about to board a flight to Italy,when all the info boards were coming up for America and some other countries.,saying Flights cancelled..which we thought was just a technical glitch.our flight went as one on our flight had any idea of what had just happened,as the crew just did their usual jobs,but they must have been devastated..that must have taken some doing...we didn't know till we went out for something to eat,at about 9pm..saw the TV,and thought it was a re run of the old film,'.Towering Inferno',till one of the waiters explained..I have never known a holiday as sombre for everyone,including the local people..and some who were due to fly out,had to stay at the hotel,and go another day..till it was deemed to be safe enough to do so..When we left,the following week,we had armed military escorting us to the Airport..
which was also surrounded by armed guards..but we were so lucky to be able to get home in safety..and thought of nothing else ,but the tragedy of 9/11 for a very long time..and still do.Something that will stay forever,I think..
