An unflagging symbol of fortitude, the One World Trade Center rises from a sea of buildings in Lower Manhattan, its beautiful steel ascent a reminder of a dark day in American history. This brilliant icon soars to 104 floors, and when it was completed in 2012, it superseded the Empire State Building as the tallest structure in New York City. At an astonishing height of 1,776 feet (541.33 meters), it is also the tallest building in America and the Western Hemisphere. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum flanks the southern end of the center, while rumbling fountains spill over granite walls and collect into twin pools north of the tower. The parapet of the pools is inscribed with almost 3000 names of the lives lost during the 9/11 attacks, allowing visitors for a moment of quiet reflection. When viewed from the lowest point from the ground, the top of the tower appears to converge and resemble a pyramidal apex. Another interesting feature about the One World Trade Center is that the height of the structure is a cleverly planned allusion to the year in which in the American Declaration of Independence was signed. A marvel of modern design, the One World Trade Center is a significant landmark that links the past and the future of this great American city.

Chamber of Commerce Building is the epitome of financial and commercial success. The building was built in 1900 in order to house the Chamber of Commerce of the State of New York, since the old premise looked too small among the sea of skyscrapers that were coming up. The building was designed with a late 19th and 20th Century Revival styles, creating a classic and beautiful exterior. The building was restored in 1990 and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China joined and took over as the new owner. The building was designated a New York City Landmark in 1966.
