A webcam documents the site's transformation from rubble to landmark.

 

Though it took time and trials and tribulations and tears, believe it or not, the 9/11 Memorial Museum, in the underground space below what was once the Twin Towers, is open this week – and one camera has captured the entire process in a time-lapse series of photos. That camera was installed by Brian Cury of webcam network Earthcam just days after the attacks to record the hard work and perseverance of rescue workers, but as it remained in its spot, it went on to record the rebuilding of the site that began in 2004, along with several other cameras that were installed along the way.
