About the World Trade Center

The World Trade Center was a complex located in the heart of the New York financial District consisting of seven buildings. Most notably the landmark twin towers, 1 World Trade Center (the North Tower) and 2 World Trade Center (the South Tower). Once the tallest buildings in the World, the twin towers tumbled to the ground as a result of terrorists attacks on September 11, 2001.

9/11 Memorial

The 9/11 Memorial opened to the victims’ families on September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and to the public on September 12, 2011. The Memorial features the names of the 2,982 victims etched into bronze panels. The 9/11 Memorial Plaza is a beautiful green space tribute with reflection pools with cascading water features, and is filled with oak trees and the lone surviving pear tree, known as the Survivor Tree.
