NEW YORK (WATE/WCBS/CNN/POOL) - In the 13 years since the 9/11 attacks, the World Trade Center site has undergone dramatic changes. Where the towers once stood, one World Trade Center stands as a beacon above the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum. It's the first time the memorial and museum will be open on an anniversary. The man in charge of the museum says the people of New York were forever changed by the attacks, and they are well-represented. "They truly are a part of this very special place," Joe Daniels, president and chief executive officer of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum said. "So when they come to this museum, they remember where they were on that day, who told them, everything they experienced." As they've done every year since the attacks, the names of every person who perished in 2001, and in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing will be read aloud, punctuated by four minutes of silence.
