As the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11 arrives, the new complex on Ground Zero is gradually reaching completion.
Both the memorial, featuring two large fountains where each tower stood, and the museum, filled with eye-witness accounts and artifacts from the attack, are open to the public. 1 World Trade Center is scheduled to open this fall. It is America’s tallest building, and one out of four planned World Trade Center office towers. Other sections of the complex are still under construction.
The complex has another goal besides remembering 9/11: It wants to create an atmosphere full of life that attracts people from around the world.
