The south tower begins to collapse as smoke billows from both towers of the World Trade Center, in New York, on Sept. 11, 2001. In one of the most horrifying attacks ever against the United States, terrorists crashed two airliners into the World Trade Center in a deadly series of blows that brought down the twin 110-story towers.

Audio of 1 World Trade Center Wailing in the Wind...When the wind whips through the 1 WTC tower from a certain angle, the surrounding area is bewitched by a strange, high-pitched sound evocative of a choral crescendo from a Philip Glass symphony.
April 27, 2006 - In New York City, construction begins on the Freedom tower. Completed as One World Trade, the final pinnacle was installed on May 10, 2013. Its spire reaches a symbolic height of 1776 feet making the skyscraper the fourth-tallest building in the world. The construction of One WTC is part of an effort to memorialize and rebuild following the destruction of the twin towers on 9/11. #history #onewtc #newyorkcity
