9/11: Six Year Anniversary

Today marks the sixth year anniversary of September 11th. Today we will have a special update looking back at the World Trade Center through out the years.

1976-The 3 year old World Trade Center dominates the skyline and begins to become one of the icons of New York shortly after it is opened to the public on April 4, 1973.

The towers themselves don't just become notable, the entire complex and plaza eventually becomes iconic. The complex is so large a separate zip code is created for it.

1988- The Marriot World Trade Center (1981) on an early Monday morning.

1995- A quiet night on the plaza.

September 11, 2000- Tourists take in the breath taking views atop the World Trade Center Observation Deck on the South Tower. Visitors are greeted with a scale model of Manhattan, a virtual skyride and the panoramic views of the city and New York Bay.

September 10, 2001-

Hello Hanson,
I just finished a BAT of the Lehman Brothers Building and was wondering if you wanted a copy. The night lights still look a little odd in some places, so if you want to do some touch ups on the model I'd be happy to send you a copy of the .bat file too.

Thank you,
