Aerial View of Ground Zero
The site of the former World Trade Center, as viewed from a helicopter in the weeks that followed the tragic events of September 11, 2001. A number of high-profile buildings appear in this dramatic photograph. They are, counterclockwise from left to right: the towers of the World Financial Center; the Verizon Building; 90 Church Street; the Millennium Hotel; Century 21 and the East River Savings Bank Building; One Liberty Plaza; and the Banker's Trust Building.

South Tower Collapsed
Its machined-precision facades shattered by the worst terrorist incident in world history, Two World Trade Center (South Tower) lies in ruins, September 19, 2001.

Destroyed Ambulance
Covered in dust, a solitary ambulance lies abandoned in the wreckage of the World Trade Center, September 15, 2001. In the background, the shattered remains of the North Tower's façade form a jagged silhouette against the smoke-clouded sky. Beyond that lies a relatively-unscathed 90 Church Street.

American Flag at the Wreckage
Like a phoenix, Old Glory defiantly flies from the wreckage that was the North Tower of the World Trade Center, September 16, 2001. Some of the many challenges that confronted rescue and recovery workers in the early days following the disaster are evident in this dramatic photograph; the enormous, twisted piles of steel debris; the burned-out remains of World Trade Center 6; and the unsupported foyer sections of the North Tower.

Ground Zero on September 17th
The WTC site as it appeared on September 17, 2001. As the remains of the World Trade Center continue to smolder, cranes and rescue crews commence the Herculean task of recovering victims and clearing debris from the site. The center of the photograph is dominated by the remains of the western façade of the South Tower, and the lower, southwestern corner of the Marriot Hotel. The debris-scarred façade of the Banker's Trust Building appears to the upper right; immediately behind the South Tower looms the window-shattered façade of One Liberty Plaza.
