---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today marks the day where 18 years ago 2,977 people died in the biggest attack on American soil since the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. September 11th, 2001 is a day that is permanently etched into every single Americans minds. Whether you were old, young, you will never forget the cowardliness that was shown by the 19 terrorists those days and the heroism shown by the firefighting personnel, the police officers, and the everyday Americans who got their co-workers out of the burning 110 story World Trade Center towers.

Many of us remember exactly and in detail where we were that day. My father, Daniel, was in his suit ready for work. My mother, Bridget, was in her car on the way to work. The radio came one saying a plane had hit the World Trade Center. My mother called my father saying someone flew a plane into the Twin Tower. My father never left for work that day and my mom was sent home immediately. They sat at the TV for 15 hours.

My best friends parents were in New York City where they lived in Queens on the 7 line. My friend's dad was a Broadway actor and my friend's mom was and still is an artist. David, my friend's dad called my friend mother, Jennifer, and said someone flew a plane into the towers. He took the subway home before they shut down the trains for the day. They sat and watched from across the river in Queens. They stood there and watched the South Tower fall and then the North. They watched the dust cloud consume Lower Manhattan as a whole. The world stopped that day.

Many forget the smaller stories and many are overlooked. The bombing on February 23rd, 1993 where 6 people died. Many forget the February 13th, 1975 tower in which a teenage janitor thought he could burn down the Twins. Many things happened at the complex. A robbery in 1998, the 1995 PCA Chess game. Some forget the Center Stage at the bottom of the Twins during the summer's where free concerts were held. Many forget the Greatest Bar on Earth, a bar on the 107th floor. Many forget Wild Blue, a smaller restaurant on the 107th floor of the North Tower. The elegance of Windows on the World with its porcelain plates and sunflowers were like nothing before. In just a few hours, it was gone. Burned, destroyed, and pulverized. All to be missed.

In my rendition of the Original World Trade Center in Minecraft, which has been in the works since February is still not complete. It will be soon. For now, you can explore the towers in one of the most accurate recreations to ever hit the Minecraft stage. You can view 'The Mall at the World Trade Center' as it was in 2001. You can view what you may have never seen.

Please keep all inappropriate comments about 9/11 and or jokes elsewhere. This build is supposed to remember the victims and heroes of that day. Please, just be mature and respectful.

Wow. This build is absolutely stunning. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to view this tower as it was 18 years ago. I never got the opportunity to see what life in the WTC back then. It is also reminding me of the destruction that occurred. It was absolutely lurid and disgusting to see that any entity would do that. I'm praying for the families that were lost in the attacks. Thank you.

Again, trying to fix that. I'm not totally sure why these issues arise but they did. To get to creative, open the world to land and turn on cheats. It will work then. Enjoy!

WOW stunning , Just stunning. You've put in so much work on it. The build doesn't look cheap or that you ( took shortcuts ) EVERY turn I'm like a kid in the toy store. Mouth wide open. I had thought of wanting to build the WTC under construction, But after seeing all your time and hard work. I don't think I have it in me. WISH I COULD GIVE YOU MORE THAN DIAMONDS OR HEARTS. you deserve it !!!!

Well I'm so glad that I was a source of inspiration but I really mean what I said--your build has reached levels of detail that I'd never have imagined, and I am beyond impressed. So congratulations on the most accurate WTC replica out there; no need to aim for it cause you're already there. This build deserves so much more attention even though it's been at the top of the trending page for days.

What mod do you use to build taller than 256 blocks?
1
04/15/2019 2:30 pm
Level 23 : Expert Architect
ItzFinnigan
It's not a mod. I built all 110 floors in different sections (1-43) (44-85) (86-110) and then when you 3D render them, you connect them into 1 tower.
