The Twin Towers, toward the end of their short life on the skyline, had arguably become the definitive symbol of New York City. The towers were destroyed in the city’s worst 102 minutes, but their iconographic legacy has proven remarkably resilient 10 years later.
Indeed, these images of the Twin Towers — a neon window silhouette here, a graphic on a delivery truck there — can be considered collectively as a quiet yet powerful citywide memorial.
Here’s a sampling of photos that amNewYork managing editor Rolando Pujol has taken over the years of these symbolic Twin Towers. Share your own with us on Twitter at @RolandoPujol.
