One World Trade Center Opens for Business (Photos)

It’s been over 13 years since the devastating terrorist attacks of September the 11th, and now the first tenants of One World Trade Center (erected in the same spot as the former World Trade Center) started working from their new offices in the skyscraper.

One World Trade Center stands a patriotic 1,776 feet high, and the significance of the doors finally being open should be obvious to everyone, even if they’ve never set foot in New York City. The first people that started work this morning at One World Trade Center are the employees of Condé Nast, but the ramifications of the event expand far beyond a single company.

You can read a lot more about the opening of One World Trade Center, as well as the significance of the event for New Yorkers and Americans all over the world, at (fittingly enough) the online version of The New York Times here. And you can see a few pictures of the building, including one of the view of the New York Skyline from the 102ns floor of One World Trade Center, in the gallery below.
