The 1993 World Trade Center bombing and 9/11 terrorist attacks affected not only the Ground Zero area but America and the whole world. This audio tour is narrated by Linda, a real person who experienced the first event and eyewitnessed the latter, to show you the WTC Complex from a unique and intimate perspective, as well as to invite you to a personal story about life and death. The tour begins underground, at the WTC subway station used by thousands of people to commute. From there, you will enter the new 1 WTC and be terrified by how Linda fled from the 65th floor of the old one veiled with heavy smoke on Feb. 26, 1993. As you explore the local working people's routine before the 9/11 events, you will get to the Winter Garden, the tour creator's healing place. Then, you will walk the off-radar sky bridges and observe the results of the Ground Zero recovery efforts from above. Next, you will approach the FDNY Memorial Wall to pay tribute to the 9/11 firefighters and share Linda's moving respect for them. Finally, Linda's vivid memories of the attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 will horrify you as you reach the point she saw it from. On your way there, you will see a few more landmarks and be impressed with the soaring architecture of the Oculus Center space. Despite the dismay, this audio tour conveys the yearning for the life that Linda carries within. Join it to walk around the World Trade Center and beyond while listening to meaningful and healing stories!
