Watch an 11-Year Time Lapse of the Construction of the World Trade Center

May 29, 2015 | Prachi Gupta

After 11 years of construction, the new World Trade Center is open to the public. Now that it’s completed, EarthCam has released a video chronicling the massive construction project. There’s something anti-climatic (and sad) about seeing more than a decade’s worth of time condensed into a two-minute video, but if this clip doesn’t do it for you, just go down and see the view for yourself. (It’ll cost you $32 to get to the top, but that’s a subject for another, potentially angrier post).
