We shall always remain as stewards and guardians of this steel and concrete structural artifact (#k-0004) granted by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), from the World Trade Center site, below the North Tower, #1 World Trade Center, in the same area as previously targeted by terrorist bombings on February 26, 1993.
