30 World Trade Center Steel Pieces Left

Continued demand for steel from the ruins of the first World Trade Center from exhibits and memorials means that only 30 pieces now remain in a John F. Kennedy Airport hangar, along with another 70 objects that include clothes and toys. Recovery workers brought in a total of 840 pieces of steel from the Trade Center site, some of which were later cut up to make a total of 2,200. The steel is now being displayed across the U.S. and in eight foreign countries. Thirty applications are still pending approval.
