PHOTO GALLERY

The World Trade Center

For several decades following their completion the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were an impressive presence on the Manhattan skyline and a popular backdrop for New York area marine operators to take publicity photos of their tugs and marine equipment. We maintain this gallery as a tribute to the many innocent victims that lost their lives in the sneak attacks of September 11, 2001, and in recognition of the ultimate sacrifice made by police, firefighters and emergency rescue personnel who died in their efforts to save others.
