The following is a picture and video story of the site in January 2009 -- for full written coverage, please read the February 2009 installment here.
Overview of World Trade Center site from above -- the core of the Freedom Tower itself is seen in the upper corner of the site -- it is a white concrete block with two white tower cranes jutting above it.
The fence surrounding the site has artist renderings of the finished site. Woman gets into cab by Northeast corner of site, across from cemetery.
Two cranes are used to build the core of the Freedom Tower, which rises 35 feet above ground -- at the Northwest section of site.
Across the street from Freedom Tower, Rich Sheppard peruses information brochures on the future site.
