Among the many reasons to visit the World Trade Center site now, consider these five:
Memory. You could visit the World Trade Center site and just read the list of names of those who died. Little has been done on the memorial construction, but the site today is very much a memorial itself. Looking through the Viewing Wall construction fence, where the names are listed, you will see 70 feet down to bedrock, where orange cones outline the Tower footprints. Then there are the emotionally moving slurry wall holding back the Hudson River, and the ramp used for the removal of bodies and debris. Take a close look because the site will not remain in this condition for long.
