Exclamation World trade center 07.14.11

I had to complete an inspection of the progress at WTC this week. I took some picture. Some of the key photos are the Survivor tree, the only tree on the property that lived through the disaster; the survivor staircase where people huddled under the concrete step and survived the collapse of the building; pictures are from the 39th floor and 66th floor. There is a Subway sandwich shop trailer on the 72nd floor for the Iron workers. Next time I will stop in and have lunch there but time did not permit this time around. Note the windows on the building are much wider than in the original building; the memorial water pools will be good to go for the 10th anniversary on 09.11.11.

Never forget the 343 and all in WTC, DC and PA on that day.
