World Trade Center subway station re-opened

Only two days ago, the Cortlandt Street subway station, which was located directly below the World Trade Center was re-opened for the first time. When the towers came down, parts of the buildings tore through the terminal. The devastation left a gaping hole above the station, and twisted the massive metal beams of the roof.

After nearly two decades, the newly rebuilt and renamed WTC Cortlandt station opened, just days before the 17th anniversary of the attacks. Though it took nearly two decades to complete, work only began on the project in 2015 because New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) was not able to gain control of the site until then.

Flight 93 wind chime memorial

Dedicated on Sunday, the new Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania honors the heroes of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijackers' plans on 9/11. Standing in a field amid the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania, the "Tower of Voices" stands 93 feet tall.

The tower is a work in progress. It currently holds eight windchimes. But will soon be expanded to 40 – one for each passenger and crew member who died here on September 11, 2001.

In Shanksville, Pa., at the site of the crash of Flight 93, the "Tower of Voices" remembers the 40 passengers and crew who heroically thwarted their hijackers' plans.
