World Trade Weekly: Last of the Deutsche Bank

Architecture East In Construction

[ As the World Trade Center continues its ascent, AN stops by the massive construction site for a weekly update. ]

From behind a blue tarp shielding the remains of the Deutsche Bank building, the sound of groaning metal being bent into submission has stopped. Debris sits separated in two neat piles, one for crushed cement and the other for metal. A polished Peterbilt mack truck with an empty container made its way through gate to take away yet another load. There were no formalities, but by this time next week the last of the World Trade Center ruins will be gone.
