Farewell to Ground Zero

A Farewell to Ground Zero
The clean up at ground zero officially ended on May 30, when the last beam of the World Trade Center was ceremoniously lifted onto a truck and carried out of the sixteen-acre hole in lower Manhattan. We talked with the ironworkers, dock builders, equipment operators, foremen, and carpenters who have been working at the site twelve hours a day, seven days a weeks since mid-September. They spoke about the sacrifices they've made, their emotional connection to the site, and the powerful sense of duty that has kept them going for more than eight months. As one foreman commented, it was a job "you wish you never had to come to," but that "you never want to leave."
