World Financial Center
This modern complex features office towers, as well as a shopping plaza and dining complex inside, and a marina overlooking the Hudson River. Located across the street from the former site of the World Trade Center, the World Financial Center sustained major damage when the twin towers were destroyed by terrorists on September 11, 2001. Designed by architect Cesar Pelli and first opened in 1988, the World Financial Center has become a popular destination in lower Manhattan. A number of corporations are headquartered there, most notably American Express.
This is a place where Americans can change a video image of horror to a real place. New York City is so much about now, but I think every American who lived through that day watching on video should visit this site to really understand the scale of what happened. I had gone up in the WTC observatory several years before. Whatever memorial they build here will have a difficult time matching the impact of the gap that exists there now. The vast hole is surrounded by a fence on which are mounted memoria and chronology of the events. Just walk the circuit. No fee except a subway ticket. Another thing that impresses is the resilience of NYC, where thousands of citizens go to work through the PATH subway station which opens directly under the site. Visit St Paul's Chapel a block away, where rescue workers were given shelter. It also has memoria. Say a prayer.
