- The September 11, 2001 terrorist attack that toppled the iconic Twin Towers and killed almost 3,000 civilians and first responders.
- 1 World Trade Center (The Freedom Tower) is now officially the tallest building in the United States. It soars to the patriotic height of 1,776 feet honoring the year of the founding of the US.
- The 9/11 Memorial, built in the footprints of the original Twin Towers, and dedicated to the victims of 9/11.
- An introduction to the 9/11 Museum that opened in 2014. For groups of 8 people or fewer, Doug can bring participants into the 9/11 Museum through the membership line, which is often much shorter than the regular line. Once inside the 9/11 Museum, you may then explore the exhibits on your own.
- St. Paul’s Chapel, built in 1766 and located just one block from the World Trade Center, survived the 9/11 attack with barely a scratch, and served as an important place of rest and recovery for construction workers, firefighters, police officers and others working on recovery efforts at Ground Zero.
- FDNY (Fire Department, City of New York) Memorial Wall at the Ten House that pays tribute to the 343 firefighters who fell on 9/11.
- The history, construction and engineering of the original World Trade Center.
- The Santiago Calatrava-designed World Trade Center Transportation Hub with its soaring 150-foot-high ribbed white wings.
