A View of Ground Zero

Eleven years after terrorists intentionally crashed two jets full of people, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the World Trade Center, Ground Zero is still one huge construction site. Cranes, jackhammers, cops, firefighters, and tourists are omnipresent. The constant noise of construction goes on all night and all day. I went there yesterday morning before the crowds came, and this is what it looked like.
