One World Trade Center Makes Creepy Noises

Tribeca Citizen reader submitted this video of One World Trade Center on a windy day last week. As you can hear, when the wind blows, the tower emits a spooky, high-pitched wailing sound. This isn’t the first time such a sound has been reported.

“I live a couple of blocks from the tower, and first heard this very eerie sound during Hurricane Sandy last year,” writes Kenny Cummings. “I’ve heard it only once afterwards, sometime last winter. I assumed once the building’s framework and windows went in, the airflow would be redirected. At 3:15 a.m. Wednesday morning, I awoke to the sound. It was slightly different in timbre, with two tones this time. I couldn’t be sure what it was at first, but after a moment I realized it was the Trade Center…I’m sure all of downtown hears this—it’s unmistakable and very chilling.” [via: Animal New York]

Made of Money | Mark Wagner Collages

It is very hard not to fall in love with these collages, creations of Brooklyn artist Mark Wagner. Has there ever been a collection of work that reflects truth more than these? It is very humbling to see one artist find a means to hit paydirt in terms of actualizing truth in his or her artwork such as this. At the same time it is extremely bad ass. For more on the artist check out his webpage at Mark Wagner Inc. [via: LICK NYC]
