World Trade Center  The official Instagram of the World Trade Center. #LowerManhattan is NYC's new center of gravity. Tag us @WTC and #MyWTC to be featured!

One of the highlights of #FleetWeekNYC is the Parade of Ships! Shown here is the #USSNewYork, sailing down the Hudson River in a salute to the World Trade Center. This iconic vessel was forged from the actual steel that was recovered from the Twin Towers. This ship is one of five other warships that has been named after the state of New York.

It's #FleetWeek here in NYC! Now in its 31st year, this is the city’s time-honored celebration of the sea services. It is an unparalleled opportunity for the citizens of New York and the surrounding tri-state area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services.

Today’s #MyWTC Vendor Spotlight is featuring @yakitoritatsunyc. Yakitori is a Japanese word that means “grilled” (yaki) and “fowl” (tori). The dishes are typically made by lancing bite-sized pieces of chicken meat on skewers and grilling them over charcoal. Yakitori is common food in Japan and there's a yakitori restaurant in every major neighborhood. Here in NYC, our friends at Yakitori Tatsu are bringing this amazing meal to the World Trade Center!
Founded by Koki Murakami and Aya Tanaka, they named their restaurant after their child. Popular in Japan, Yakitori stands are known to line the streets and festivals. Having been fans of NYC’s own street festival @smorgasburg since 2012, the couple dreamed of becoming a vendor, and after years of preparation, they finally debuted their amazing food during the 2016 season.
We asked them what their favorite thing about #SmorgasburgWTC was, and they simply responded with, “everything!” With the many diverse people that come by, this event is always very fun to be a part of. When it comes to their favorite thing on their menu, they told us to check out their “Tatsu set”. This dish involves their best quality Kobe beef, pork belly, and of course, chicken. So, if you’re as hungry as we are after reading this, make sure to stop by and visit their tent for NYC’s best yakitori!

This weekend, the inaugural #ManhattanConcours will be held on the waterfront plaza of Brookfield Place New York here in #LowerManhattan. This new event marks the first time New York City will host a group of vintage collector cars along the picturesque #HudsonRiver. Tonight the event will go from 4-7pm, perfect for you to grab a bite at @smorgasburg here at WTC right before! Photo by: @benjaminteper

Kadir Nelson has had 12 New Yorker magazine covers, a U.S. Postal Service stamp commemorating R&B and pop legend Marvin Gaye, and numerous other art pieces- including his latest sculpture at the World Trade Center.⁣

The Art of Kadir Nelson will be the centerpiece of a new effort by the developer and owner of the World Trade Center site to display world class art in the 16-acre district. At the center of that new effort is a major commissioning of art about cycling icon Marshall "Major" Taylor- the fastest cyclist in the world.⁣

Specifically, the black bronze sculpture will be on display, starting next month, at 3 World Trade Center, at Dey and Greenwich Streets. Crowd estimates show that about 200,000 people pass by the location daily.⁣

"Down here at the World Trade Center, we feel very strongly about telling stories like Kadir wants to tell," said Cory Silverstein of @silverartprojects.⁣

Silverstein is the General Manager of Silver Art, which he helped to create in order to display world class art at the World Trade Center.⁣

Can we make #FriedChickenFriday a thing? We think Tae Kang (founder of @thaibirdnyc) would be on board.⁣

For this week's #MyWTC Vendor Spotlight, we are getting a taste of Thailand with Thaibird's creative dishes! Kang founded Thaibird just three years ago at a little food market called Smorgasburg, ever heard of it? 🍍🍗⁣

He created Thaibird as a way to give himself a new challenge and adventure, you know- add a little spice to his life. And if you're looking to add some spice into your life, then you have got to try Kang's favorite item on the menu, the Spicy Firebird! It's his take on Nashville hot chicken. And since it's been a chilly spring so far, this may be just the thing to warm up your taste buds!⁣

Head over to #SmorgasburgWTC to try Thaibird, and don’t forget to follow and tag @WTC with your Smorgasburg pictures!

Noel C. (@nyclovesnyc) captures the many #artistic and #architectural facets of the World Trade Center during a foggy #lowermanhattan morning.

On Saturday, the World Trade Center hosted the 5th Annual NYC Memorial Stair Climb. This year, over 400 first responders (from 11 countries - including New Zealand, Italy, and Thailand - and 30 states) ascended the 80 floors to the top of 3 WTC. Shown here are #Engine76 and #Ladder22 gearing up for their climb to remember. Make sure to follow them on Instagram at @nycstairclimb for all the latest news, stories, and updates.
