The New World Trade Center

One World Trade Center – New York, New York

I wanted to finish my coverage of Ground Zero with the new iconic skyscraper, One World Trade Center. Also known as the Freedom Tower, it stands 1776 feet to the top of the spire.

Although redeveloped because of tragic circumstances, the result, twenty years later, is undeniably better than the original.

While the twin towers of the first World Trade Center were domineering — I prefer the new one. The grounds, the trees, and the stunning Oculus Center are more human-centered. The two giant memorial fountains are visual reminders of that horrific day on September 11, 2001.
