New York rising: 12 years since 9/11

September 11, 2013

Yahoo News photographer Gordon Donovan returned this week to the scenes of many memorable images taken on September 11, 2001, closely matching them with images from today.

Since then, new obstacles have arisen, requiring some adjustments in camera angles to align with photographs taken on the day of the attacks. This is the third time Donovan has revisited the New York skyline; each year presents new challenges as the landscape changes. (Yahoo News)
