What's the former staging area for the Memorial Plaza being used for these days? I see from this last pic that the 3 potted trees are still there and there seems to be some other stuff there as well.....

Sort of a pocket park, lounge area. I saw construction workers playing ping pong on their lunch break.

About time. Too bad 3WTC is blocking most of the view now.

Grrrrr!..I am pretty upset I can not find any pic about south bridge extension!(and liberty park!).Hundreds(thousands?) of people have to take pictures daily from one wtc observation deck,and many are supposed to post them on social media(especially on Flickr!)..no way!
I even tried to find a street cam on West street,had a look on local news websites...NOTHING!!...maybe a local forumer....or that robot who found Flickr algorithm:our beloved Oasis-Bangkok!
..Also,that empty lot where Deutsche tower was standing makes me nervous!..KPF design was cute!!...

Honestly, I'm surprised that footbridge survived 9/11. It's been there since at least 1985.

Thats what I'm saying. The second pedestrian bridge near the North Tower was destroyed when the towers fell, but this one some how survived.

The footbridge that was by the North Tower was directly below the Tower. When it collapsed it basically fell on the bridge (as well on the whole WTC site). The south footbridge was a bit farther from the WTC, when the South Tower collapsed the debris cloud wasn't big enough to destroy the whole bridge. Only thing that was damaged was the stairs to go up the bridge

Yeah, I know. I'm just surprised that the bridge wasn't destroyed by debris from either of the towers collapsing. I know it was a bit further than the North one but it was still very close.

The South tower fell mostly to the East and just missed the bridge.
