American Ground : Unbuilding the World Trade Center
American Ground Unbuilding the World Trade Center
Author: William Langewiesche
Selected as one of the best books of 2002 by The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, and Chicago Sun-Times — Within days after September 11, 2001, William Langewiesche had secured unique, unrestricted, round-the-clock access to the World Trade Center site. America...  more »is a tour of this intense, ephemeral world and those who improvised the recovery effort day by day, and in the process reinvented themselves, discovering unknown strengths and weaknesses. In all of its aspects--emotionalism, impulsiveness, opportunism, territoriality, resourcefulness, and fundamental, cacophonous democracy--Langewiesche reveals the unbuilding to be uniquely American and oddly inspiring, a portrait of resilience and ingenuity in the face of disaster.

An excellent account on how the area, buildings, and wreckage of WTC were dismantled and shipped to Staten Island with care due to environmental worries and even including all NYC and NYS bureaucracies.

Never forget.
