April 4, 1973 - Opening Day of the World Trade Center Complex in NYC. My family and I visited this site just at the time when the twin towers were being completed! They were an amazing sight! It is difficult to wrap my mind around what happened to them and all of their inhabitants!
If you find yourself in Lower Manhattan, make sure to stop by the corner of Fulton and Nassau Streets. The intersection offers a direct view of the One World Trade Center, which lines up perfectly in the middle of the street.
Londinium c. 200 AD ~ The early settlement became a trading port. The Roman historian Tacitus described the city as ‘packed with traders.’ a thriving city with a great bridge over the Thames (near the present London Bridge), a forum (market place), a vast basilica (town hall), an amphitheater, public baths and walled fort surrounded by a great defensive wall.
