Project Rebirth: Documenting the Reconstruction at Ground Zero - NYC

The term ground zero (sometimes also known as zero point and surface zero, may be used to describe the point on the earth's surface where an explosion occurs.

The origins of the term "ground zero" began with the Manhattan Project and the bombing of Japan.

The term was also used to describe the site of the World Trade Center in New York City, which was destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attacks.

This is a picture of the zone in 2009 when a reconstruction project started.
