In epic photos: One World Trade Center rises from Ground Zero New York

by | 3rd, April 2013

NEW YORK City’s One World Trade Center is up. It occupies part of the Ground Zero site when the Twin Towers once stood. When completed, the tower will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere – 1776ft high. Visitors will be able to stand on the observation deck – floors 100 to 102 – and look out at the great city.  After 11 years that wonderful view is back. We’ll never forget 9/11. But – you know what – up yours Al Qaeda. In your face. We win:
