Ground Zero

The smoldering remains of the World Trade Center lie at the center of what would soon be dubbed ground zero. As the tenth anniversary of the attacks approaches this week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the term should now be phased out.

"We will never forget the devastation of the area that came to be known as ground zero. Never. But the time has come to call those 16 acres [6.5 hectares] what they are: The World Trade Center and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum," he said during a recent speech hailing rebuilding efforts.

Aiding the Injured

Todd Heaney and Frankie DiLeo of Engine 209 help a fellow firefighter who was injured at the World Trade Center during 9/11.

"The firefighter stories are so remarkable," Chanin said. "I can't tell you how many testimonies we've had from survivors of the buildings about their impressions of the firefighters as they were escaping down the stairways and the firefighters were going up those same stairs—as far as the 80th floor in one case.

"It's absolutely incredible how they conducted themselves in the midst of all this."

After the Crash

Smoke rises behind investigators on September 12 as they comb the Pennsylvania field where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed.

The plane was among four hijacked as part of the 9/11 plot, but interference from passengers forced the aircraft to crash in rural Shanksville.

Direct Evidence

This picture of a piece of United Airlines Flight 93 lying in a Pennsylvania field on September 14 was introduced as evidence during the trial that linked Zacarias Moussaoui to al Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks.

Moussaoui was sentenced to life without parole in 2006.

Seen on September 14, an apartment on Liberty Street in lower Manhattan is a burned-out shell following the collapse of the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks.

Faces of the Fallen

People on a New York City street scan pictures of the many police and fire personnel still missing in the wake of the attacks as of September 28, 2001.

"I've heard from any number of survivors that they could tell by looking at firefighters' faces [the firefighters] knew how bad this was and that they might not get out," Chanin said. "They knew what they were facing, and the heroism and courage [they showed] is just astonishing."

Rising From the Rubble

On October 9, nearly a month after 9/11, the rubble of the World Trade Center's south tower still smoldered.

Today, ten years after 9/11, the memory of the attacks continues to burn even as a new version of the World Trade Center rises from the ashes at ground zero.

(Also see pictures of an 18th-century ship found under the rubble at the 9/11 site.)
