Shortly after the 9/11 events in New York City, Brian Cury, founder and CEO of EarthCam, installed a webcam at the site, so that the world could witness the brave determination of first responders working at what became known as Ground Zero.
Soon after, Cury, added more cameras that documented the construction of the National 9/11 Memorial Museum.
Now ten years and one million images later, Cury and his team have released a time lapse video, showing the site’s construction over the last 10 years.
“This commemorative time-lapse honors the victims of 9/11 and is dedicated to their families and friends, with special gratitude to the first responders and the steadfast construction teams,” Cury says. “I hope this time-lapse serves as a way to recognize that for the 10 years of construction, there was constant progress made to rebuild these important 16 acres of America.”
