Photo by myself near the World Trade Center, at Washington and Albany Streets.
One of the workers at the World Trade Center took a break, Thursday morning.
Tons of people work in the World Financial Center, a group of towers near the World Trade Center site. As a result, the sidewalks are very crowded, especially during rush hour. The site itself is walled off and under construction.
In the last few days, there have been more reflections on 9/11 in the media. The ten-year anniversary is upon us. This year, the date falls on a Sunday.
In the past, the names of all the victims have been read aloud in a ceremony held at the site. It is a very long list.
The glass towers to the right are part of the new World Trade Center. The beige towers to the left are part of the World Financial Center.
By the way, the Times has an incredible slideshow of photographs showing the construction, life and end of the original World Trade Towers, online. Click here to see the slideshow.
