World Trade Center Offers Time Lapse Video on Elevator

Rebuilding the World Trade Center was a triumphant achievement for developers. Although Ground Zero is now the site a beautiful new tower opened in November 2014, it has not left the history of its evolution behind.

There are a number of memorials built into the new building, including the 9/11 Museum. The newest edition to this memorial-themed construction is a breathtaking time-lapse video that has been added to the elevator. When visitors ride up to the observation deck of 1 World Trade Center, they can watch a video that shows the changing skyline of New York City throughout history.

It is a haunting glimpse of a city that is constantly changing, both from innovation and tragedy. It is also a reminder that the city preserves its history even as it changes and replaces the old. Riding up the elevator, a visitor can watch New York grow from the ground up as the video tracks the city from its grassy roots in the early 1500s to the present day. Built into this time lapse video is, of course, the eerie and sudden disappearance of the original Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

The video is meant to honor New York City as a whole, but also to pay tribute to the loss of its beloved towers. The newest edition to the skyline is, of course, the Freedom Tower at 1 World Trade Center, which now stands as the tallest skyscraper in the country — reaching up to 1,776 feet.

For the people who suffer health complications due to their exposure to toxic materials on and after 9/11, there are options available to receive much-needed benefits. For more information, meet with a compassionate injury lawyer at Barasch, McGarry Salzman & Penson in New York.

  • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation


    There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

    For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.
