Today, World Trade Center One reached its highest point. This is what it looked like two years ago tonight.
Unfiltered 9/11 Footage | Hoboken, NJ & Manhattan
I edited together, with no music or narration, footage from September 3rd and 11th 2001 taken by my father, the Stevens TV club and me in Hoboken, NJ and from September 19, 2001 in Manhattan shot by my father.

I remember watching the Hoboken Italian Festival fireworks 11 years ago in front of the original World Trade Center. Watching them again tonight now that the new 1WTC is finally topped out, it feels like a sort of closure. (Taken with Instagram at Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ)
The steel on One World Trade Center has reached the 100th floor.
This picture I took last week makes the small airplane look almost attached to the crane on the left.

Some photos I took/of me and the World Trade Center
It was my third week of my freshman year of college. As I walked out of the dining hall after finishing breakfast at about a quarter to 9 I heard a girl exclaim “oh my God, that’s the World Trade Center!” I thought to myself, wow, what an idiot… after three weeks she just finally noticed where the WTC is? But as I turned my head around to face toward lower Manhattan about 1.5 miles across the Hudson River, I realized there was a gaping hole in the side of the North Tower. My first instinct was to immediately run to my dorm room and get my camera.
I originally made this video around the 5 year anniversary of the attacks. It’s edited from footage and pictures my father, college TV station (which I later became the General Manager of) and I took.
On one hand there’s no need to dwell on the past, but on the other, as cliche as it is to say, it’s important to make sure we never forget. I think one of the saddest memories is that of all the “missing” persons posters plastered on utility poles, bus stops and walls throughout the NYC area. That at the time these people’s loved ones and friends still had hope that their brother, sister, son, daughter, father, mother, partner, and friend was still out there somewhere, simply “missing” and would somehow be found. What else can you do when someone never came home one day but somehow look for them?
Although they had to know the tragic truth in the back if their mind even if they had not yet allowed themselves to accept it.
I feel that at least there is some sort of closure now that the new 1 WTC is finally looming over the lower Manhattan skyline

Nice shot as always, Chris. I’m happy to say it’s name is no longer Freedom Tower, but One World Trade Center like it should be. I wish a second one was built and they were referred to as the twin towers. I miss them.
However, the new WTC 2 won’t be too shabby.
The first of the two massive WTC memorial waterfalls was tested yesterday for the first time.
The two fountains together make up the nation’s largest manmade waterfalls, and are at the heart of the design of the memorial, called Reflecting Absence.
The reflecting pools covering the exact footprints of the Twin Towers will be surrounded by the names of all the victims of the 2001 and 1993 attacks, etched into a bronze parapet that will be back-lit so the names can be read at night.
