    Talking N.Y. Begins Construction of Freedom Tower

    NEW YORK - A 20-ton slab of granite, inscribed to honor "the enduring spirit of freedom," was laid Sunday at the World Trade Center site as the cornerstone of the skyscraper that will replace the destroyed towers.

With him are New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey, right, New York Gov. George Pataki, fourth from right, and site owner Larry Silverstein, behind. The ceremony marked the start of construction on the 1,776-foot Freedom Tower, designed as a twisting glass and steel tower that evokes the Statue of Liberty, including a 276-foot spire resembling her torch.(AP Photo/Gregory Bull)
