See a decade of construction on One World Trade Center in two minutes (video)
A time-lapse video shows the progress made on the massive new building, which will anchor the revamped World Trade Center site, from 2004 to 2013.

Today is, of course, the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, and above all it's a day of remembrance—of memorializing those who died in the attacks, both here and in Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania.
RECOMMENDED: See all September 11 memorial events
But as construction continues on the World Trade Center site—the 9/11 Memorial has been open for two years now, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum will open next year, and One World Trade Center will likely also be ready in 2014—it's also a day to appreciate how the city has moved forward.
To that end, EarthCam (which live-streamed the raising of the spire on One World Trade Center) has released a new time-lapse video, showing the progress on One World Trade Center from 2004, when the first symbolic brick was laid, to the present day. It's a stunning reminder of New York's resilience.
