Eleven years after terrorists attacked the World Trade Center, the new multibillion-dollar center once again dominates the Lower Manhattan skyline, the Associated Press reports.
The status of the WTC’s major components, according to developers:
Most of the 8-acre memorial quadrangle at the World Trade Center opened last year on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Since then, about 4.5 million people have visited the memorial, with its twin reflecting pools where the towers stood. A museum being built in a cavern beneath the plaza is still incomplete. Work all but stopped last fall because of a funding dispute between the memorial foundation and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
