Remembering 9/11 over the last 15 years in photos

Time has passed, but our thoughts and memories from 9/11 certainly have not. Remember the fallen with these photos.

It’s been 15 years since New York’s Twin Towers fell on September 11, 2001. While time has passed, our thoughts and memories from the unimaginable day certainly have not. New York and our stunning NYC skyline have come a long way since 2001, with the addition of the beautiful One World Trade Center, as well as new New York attractions such as the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. To remember the fearless firefighters, officers and victims who lost their lives during this horrific act of terrorism, we honor not only them, but this spectacular city with a slideshow of New York’s progression over the last 15 years. We think you’ll agree that it is quite symbolic that the photos we found were all taken from different perspectives. Much like our own stories from 9/11, each experience and memory comes from a different point of view. But, as New Yorkers, Americans and the country as a whole, we all share one common ground; we will always remember and we will never forget.
