Photographer's Note

I decided to post a few more photos from my visit to the World Trade Center site last October. In the center of this photo is One World Trade Center, also known as the Freedom Tower. It’s surrounded by other skyscrapers on the site, and reflected on the façade of the September 11 Museum.

One WTC has 104 floors, and it reaches a height of 1,776 feet (541.3 meters), making it the tallest building in North America. The feet in height was chosen to be a very specific number; it’s actually the year when the Declaration of Independence was signed. The building opened in 2014, and the observatory opened in 2015.

The museum opened in May 2014, and is 70 feet (21 meters) below ground. Visitors enter at street level and then descend into the museum space. One of the walls is the original retaining wall from one of the fallen towers.

I like reflections, and here you can not only see One WTC reflected in the museum, but you can also see one of the other towers reflected in One WTC. :-)
