Crowds Spontaneously Converge at Ground Zero

On May 1, 2011, just shy of 10 years to the day after the Sept. 11th attacks of 2001, news broke that President Obama would be making an announcement regarding Osama Bin Laden. Before the President made it down the red carpet to the White House podium—where he would make his historic announcement—crowds had already began to form at landmarks around the country, like Times Square and the White House; people overseas even began to celebrate. But, most symbolically of all, people flocked to Ground Zero. The footage from here struck the highest chord: the site of horrendous attacks and the current site of the unfinished 1 World Trade Center, this was the place to be on this night of all nights.
