EarthCam’s network of high-definition cameras captured the incredible footage over the course of October 2004 to September 2013. According to an EarthCam statement , the company hand-edited hundreds of thousands of images that together reveal the striking assembly of the 104-story skyscraper, formerly known as the Freedom Tower.

Fairfield firefighters and local volunteers are partnering with The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play’ Project, the New Jersey State Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association’s effort to build 26 playgrounds in coastal communities damaged by Superstorm Sandy. All the sites will also honor the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. Craig Lehmann, Jessica’s uncle, traveled from Tampa, Fla., to be on hand as his niece is honored. “There’ll be horses, actually a drawing Jessica made of a horse, orca whales — so her personality will be throughout this project,” he said. Jessica, the oldest of the three Rekos children, was big sister to Travis and Shane. Both brothers are at the playground site today. “(H)e’s going to dig the first hole and he’s going to boss us around, hopefully, and keep us working,” Bill Lavin, of the New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association, said of Travis.
