History of Lower Manhattan

Being the business center of NYC and arguably for the whole of the United States of America, Lower Manhattan has seen a lot of historical events in its modern history. The first and the most important one is the destruction of the Twin Towers of the original World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The event resulted in deaths of 2,606 people and shocked the world. Many of today’s U.S. government policies are influenced by the horrifying event. Today there is a National September 11 Memorial at the site of the event. The next big event in American history that was situated in Lower Manhattan was the Occupy Wall Street movement that began on September 17, 2011.
