NEW YORK — Thirteen years after the 9/11 terrorist attack, the resurrected World Trade Center is opening for business. It's an emotional milestone for New Yorkers and the nation.
Some of publishing giant Conde Nast's staffers began working at 1 WorldTrade Center on Monday. The 104-story, $3.9 billion skyscraper dominates the Manhattan skyline and is America's tallest building.
It's the centerpiece of the 16-acre site where the decimated twin towers once stood and where more than 2,700 people died on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey owns the trade center site. Executive Director Patrick Foye says 1 World Trade Center makes the city's skyline "whole again."
