360° virtual reality Tour Inside NYC’s $4 Billion World Trade Center Transit Hub
Rising from the ground where the Twin Towers once stood, the World Trade Center transportation hub was intended as a symbol of rebirth. A project that lasted 7 years more than it’s planned completion date and with cost doubling the original budge, the 4 billion dollar transit hub at the World Trade Center site is finally opening to the public this month.
World Trade Center is a terminal station in Lower Manhattan for PATH rail service. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, a temporary station opened in 2003. The station house opened on March 4, 2016, as the World Trade Center Transportation Hub.

Imagine What If 360 Degree Video Existed Back When The Catastrophic Event Happened
It may be 10 years since the attacks in the US on 11 September, but conspiracy theories have not faded over time. What’s your take on the theory?
The 911 Conspiracy Theory
A study shows that a 14% of the people are convinced that the U.S. government was involved in a conspiracy to stage the September 11 attacks which killed nearly 3,000 people. Another survey, which interviewed 1,000 people in the UK and the same number in the U.S., found that 14 per cent of Britons 15 per cent of Americans think the past administration was involved in the tragedy. Some top conspiracy theories include:
Question: why did the world’s most powerful air force fail to intercept any of the four hijacked planes?
Possibly explanation: The then US Vice President Dick Cheney ordered the military to stand down and not to intercept the planes.
Question: Why was the United Airlines flight 93 crash site at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, so small and why was the aircraft debris not visible?
Possibly explanation: The plane was shot down by a missile and disintegrated in mid air, scattering the wreckage over a large area, and that the aircraft was not under the control of al-Qaeda but the Pentagon itself.
Question: how could an amateur pilot fly a commercial plane in a complicated manoeuvre and crash it into the headquarters of the world’s most powerful military, 78 minutes after the first report of a possible hijack and leave no trace?
Possibly explanation: A commercial Boeing 757 did not hit the building but instead a missile, a small aircraft or an unmanned drone was used. But since evidence has increasingly shown that the American Airlines Flight 77 did hit the building, the emphasis has shifted to questioning the difficult approach manoeuvre. It is argued it was not under the control of al-Qaeda but the Pentagon itself.
Question: How could a skyscraper, which was not hit by a plane, collapse so quickly and symmetrically, when no other steel-framed skyscraper has collapsed because of fire?
Possibly explanation: The World Trade Center Building 7 was destroyed by a controlled demolition using both explosives and incendiaries.
We will never know what the true reason was for the delayed time and enormous over spending rebuilding the World Trade Center transit hub. Maybe something was buried underneath that needed time to recover from the 911 attack?
