New World Trade Center

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/world-trade-center-reopens-business-26646782

This article is about the opening of the first offices in the new World Trade Center. I find it interesting that the new World Trade Center is both a memorial to 9/11 and, as this article says, “a symbolic return to some sort of normalcy” for the site of the biggest tragedy on American soil.

  1. There has certainly been a lot of attention in the public history community on the ground zero site. I wonder what impact this new (and last?) building on the site will make– what is its meaning historically? Why build a commercial building on a memorial site, some would say on a graveyard?
