World Trade Center

Feb 23, 2024 | Technology, Videos

On September 11, 2001, the world was changed forever when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, New York City. This event has left permanent scars on the lives of countless people, and is remembered as a tragedy of immense proportions.

The towers were more than just places of business. They represented the triumph of human enterprise and ingenuity, having been built by hundreds of hardworking professionals in just seven years. At the time they were completed in 1972, they stood at a towering 1,368 and 1,362 feet respectively—the tallest buildings in the world, until being surpassed by the Sears Tower in 1974.

Sadly, all that was lost on that fateful day in 2001. The attacks destroyed both towers within hours and their debris littered the streets of Manhattan for weeks afterwards. The rebuilding process began soon after and now six new skyscrapers are taking shape at WTC site as a physical reminder that life must go on despite tragedy.

But what isn’t so widely known is the story behind it all—the courage of those who fought to save others; the grief experienced by those who lost loved ones; or how lives have been changed because of this tragedy. To understand this extraordinary event and to pay tribute to those affected by it—especially those who made ultimate sacrifice—we recommend watching “In Memoriam: New York City 9/11/01”, an Emmy Award-winning documentary exploring these stories first-hand from those involved in one way or another.
