More than 26,000 people have worked to rebuild the World Trade Center complex, and many will continue working there for years until the five skyscrapers, transportation hub and retail complex on the site have been completed. It's a huge project, spanning 16 acres with an overall cost of about $14.8 billion - up from a 2008 estimate of $11 billion. And it has taken a long time to come to fruition. Although the site cleanup officially ended in May of 2002, construction on One World Trade Center, the 1,776-foot tall centerpiece of the site, didn't begin until 2006.

Chen “Michael” Deng traveled with a group of as many as 30 friends to a sparsely populated area of Pennsylvania for a weekend of what was supposed to be fraternal bonding. It cost him his life, officials say. Deng, 19, a freshman at Baruch College in Manhattan, was with three other pledges of his school's chapter of Pi Delta Psi fraternity at a rented house in Tunkhannock Township in the Poconos, some 75 miles west of New York. There the pledges were hazed, officials said. “He was blindfolded, in the dark, carrying some weight and asked to get from point to point while several of his brothers were striking, tackling, punching and pushing him,” Pocono Mountain Regional Police Chief Harry Lewis told the Los Angeles Times on Friday.
