WNYC began visiting the World Trade Center site in April 2010 and continues to document the construction of 1 World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial, the transportation hub and the people working on the site.
Despite crippling summer heat, workers carried on and are on schedule to complete construction of the Memorial Plaza and Memorial Pools in time for the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks this fall. Today, 1 World Trade Center has 69 floors with concrete poured and 78 floors of steel.
