World Trade Center reopens for business
NEW YORK - Thirteen years after the 9/11 terrorist attack, the resurrected World Trade Center is opening for business. It's an emotional milestone for both New Yorkers and the nation.
Publishing giant Conde Nast will start moving into One World Trade Center on Monday. The 104-story, $3.9 billion skyscraper dominates the Manhattan skyline and is America's tallest building.
The building is the centerpiece of the 16-acre site where the decimated twin towers once stood and where more than 2,700 people died on Sept. 11, 2001. It's constructed with steel-reinforced concrete.
The executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the building and the World Trade Center site, says the building's reopening is a major milestone.
"The New York City skyline is whole again," says Patrick Foye.
