New York is rebuilding Ground Zero after 9/11 and it will also be a monument to 9/11. More improved and ever lasting tribute to our strengths.
President Obama will get the views of a lifetime Thursday during his trip to the WTC site, including those of the Freedom Tower (left) as seen from WTC 4.
When President Obama comes to Ground Zero on Thursday, he will see an impressive work in progress under a dozen soaring cranes on a site dotted by scores of hardhats.
He will see 1 World Trade Center — the Freedom Tower — has almost topped off at 104 floors as workers erect the huge glass panes that encase the structure.
Across from that, 2 World Trade is at grade level and workers are beginning the 88-story climb to completion.
Three World Trade is a seven-floor concrete block intended to provide extra security to the eventual 80-story building.
If the commander in chief looks up, he’ll see an American flag and a POW flag flapping in the wind atop the hulking cement structure.
Next door, 4 World Trade has climbed to 70 floors and has only two floors to travel to reach its apex. Construction crews travel between floors in elevator cages.
