9/11 Memorial Time Lapse


With the Freedom Tower rising about a storey a day, it is amazing to see the progress and the impact the structure is having on the skyline.  We spotted this time lapse video of the construction of the Memorial, showing the filling of the towers’ footprints, to the thousands of gallons of water being pumped into the voids, and the hundreds of white oaks planted.  Our favorite part is at the end of the video when it zooms to show the Memorial’s scale and positioning in relationship to the new built structures.  As the tenth anniversary of this horrific tragedy quickly approaches, millions will be remembering the day in their own way, from a Hand-in-Hand public show of unity when thousands will join hands along the West Side of Manhattan on September 10 to an 1,800 person motorcycle ride from the South of the country to Ground Zero.  We are also glad that New Yorkers and Americans will have a finished Memorial to show our strength, unity and growth.

    Maybe this is just an issue for non-US viewers, but the ‘selected item is not currently available’ when you try to play this film. You just get an ad for Mastercard.
