It's a circle of remembrance. Those aren't workers, they're family and friends of the 9/11 victims who have to come to pay respect.

Clearly not family and friends, if it was family and friends there would be thousands... not 40 or so in a spaced circle. Its obviously some type of ceremony but not strictly family and friends in a casual gathering.

Great process! I can't believe it is 8 years since 9/11 attacks... I am glad they're rebuilding it now... I am wondering what Ground Zero would look like next year for 9th anniversary of 9/11.

O godzinie 8:46 (14:46) rozpoczął się lokalny dramat, który ogarnął dolny Manhattan a później całe miasto.

A jednak o 9:59 (15:59) niespodziewanie zapada się South Tower, kto by przypuszczał, że budynek ze stali jest w stanie się zawalić. Kulminacją całej "operacji" jak również ostatecznym końcem World Trade Center stała się godzina 10:28 (16:28), kiedy to najwyższy budynek w Nowym Jorku, symbol tego miasta upadł zgasła ostatnia iskra nadziei... Godzina 8:46 (14:46) jak również 10:28 (16:28) o krótki okres który to zmienił cały nasz współczesny świat, to okres w którym to pieniądze pokazały kto tu rządzi i kto ma władzę. 2973 osoby, tyle właśnie istnień kosztowało pokazanie kto tu rządzi, ale dlaczego takim kosztem ? pewnie nigdy się nie dowiemy co się właśnie stało w tym krótkim okresie czasu, który trwał 101 minut - tylko 101 minut.
Dziś jest dzień pamięci, dzień który nas zmienił, zmienił nasz spojrzenie na świat. O właśnie takich wydarzeniach jak 9/11 trzeba pamiętać i poszukiwać odpowiedzi dlaczego...

5 Sierpnia 1966r - 23 Grudnia 1970r - 19 Lipca 1971 r - 4 Kwietnia 1973r - 26 Lutego 1993r - 11 Września 2001r

Eight years ago 11 September 2001, the world has experienced tremendous shock and drama of events in the United States. But today we particularly remember how the tragedy has struck New York City, where the two towers collapsed magnificent World Trade Center complex. At 8:46 (14:46) launched the local drama that engulfed lower Manhattan and then the whole city. But at 9:03 (15:03), when the South Tower began to sparkle tragedy engulfed the whole world where the sight of millions of people around the world, the tower was attacked. Who would have imagined that it could be something worse than those two hours shocking, shocking attack. But with 9:59 (15:59) suddenly collapses South Tower, who would believe that a building with steel is able to collapse. The culmination of the whole "operation" as well as the ultimate end of the World Trade Center has become the hour of 10:28 (16:28), when the tallest building in New York, the symbol of the city fell extinguished the last spark of hope ... Time 8:46 (14:46) and 10:28 (16:28) for a short period that it has changed our entire modern world, a period in which the money has shown who is in charge here, and who has authority. 2973 people, so many lives it cost just to show who is in charge here, but why such a cost? probably never know what just happened in that short period of time, which lasted 101 minutes - only 101 minutes.
Today is Memorial Day, the day that changed us, changed our world view. By the way such events as 9 / 11 you have to remember and to seek answers why ...

This is the second slowest Tower Construction in the World. Glad to see the pace has picked up though.

I agree....never I suppose cause I figgered it out. They never read the other posts. Not the ones before or the ones after they post. They don't get instant email updates like all us addicts do. They are basically trolls who sift through once in a blue moon and toss a wrench into the continuity of the thread. I bet 80% of 'em never know we are bashing their brains out in print....tragic isn't it?

It is somekind of ceremony indeed; those guys represent police or fire-depaertments of NYC?

That shows how much research the network news departments do before they publish a story! Considering towers 2 & 3 haven't even arrange financing yet, there already setting finished dates? If they had done a little research they would have seen that they would have been better off discussing whether they would get built, not when.
