New York Innaugurates New Tower at Ground Zero


New York City innaugurated the first tower of the new World Trade Center yesterday (Wednesday), built in Lower Manhattan at Ground Zero, which was decimated in the September 11, 2001 terror attack on the United States.

Four World Trade Center is the smallest of the four main towers on the site.  It is 298 meters tall -- a shorter, simpler version of One World Trade Center, the centrepiece of the revamped site, which will not be completed until early 2014 and will be the tallest building in the US.
