Ten Years of Planning and Constructing the 9/11 Memorial & Museum Condensed To A Time-Lapse

Rebuilding downtown New York City after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 was an incredible feat. The heroic determination from that day continued as the rebuilding process began and continued for ten years to honor the victims with The National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

Film company EarthCam worked countless hours maintaining webcams active around the World Trade Center for more that 4,600 days. Compiling these webcam images, the company made a beautiful time-lapse video that honors all the victims of 9/11 and is “dedicated to their families and friends, with special gratitude to the first responders and the steadfast construction teams.

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City was designed and constructed to commemorate the victims and first responders of that fateful day. To commemorate the determined men and women who brought the memorial to life, we have gorgeous videos, like this, that capture their hard work frame by frame:
