One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. One World Trade Center --or Freedom Tower as most call it -- was built to show the resilience (quick to recover) of the American spirit after the devastating terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. This week we will look at Freedom Tower and the memorial to those who lost their lives on that infamous (means "disgraceful" or "wicked") day.
Six months after a terrorist attack destroyed the World Trade Center twin towers in New York City, a "Tribute in Light" was lit in Manhattan.
