The World Trade Center, Historical Archive, 9/11 Commemoration

This project is in honor of all those who have passed on February 26th, 1993 and September 11th, 2001.

The World Trade Center: Historical Archive is a series of video montages that will show the history of the World Trade Center site, from the 1968 construction of the original Trade Center to the completion of the new Trade Center in 2015.

This project is strictly non-profit and is for viewing only. This project has no political subtext what-so-ever. It will simply exist as an archive for future generations to view who are interested in learning about the World Trade Center in a historical context.
