Photos of New York City 18 years after the 9/11 attacks show how much the Big Apple has changed in many ways while remaining familiar at the same time.

The new images taken on September 11, 2019, show a fresh look of Lower Manhattan, where nearly 3,000 were killed when airplanes hit the Twin Towers.

Photographs taken on Wednesday capture New Yorkers roaming the World Trade Center area, but almost two decades later it was a completely different scene when workers ran from collapsing buildings.

Depicted from different angles, including West Street, Fulton Street and Cortlandt St in Lower Manhattan, people see their daily lives continue on Wednesday, many with a vivid reminder of the day that has changed the world.

One pedestrian on Church Street saw a T-shirt with the word & # 39; freedom & # 39; on the backside. She can see the new Brookfield Place glass building in the distance.

A demonstrator was holding a sign with the words & # 39; Trust Gov? & # 39; and & # 39; 9/11 lie & # 39; on the other hand as he walked through the area where rumble once covered Vesey Street.

A few appeared cuddly on the stairs of the Brooks Brothers building that is now closed.

In the meantime, spectators from Brooklyn Bridge Park watched over the East River in Brooklyn on Wednesday, across the water where smoke rippled from the Twin Towers 18 years ago.
