BROOKLYN - News 12 Brooklyn got an inside look at the new World Trade Center site today.

Cascading waterfalls are a big part of the new memorial, representing those who died and giving a peaceful tone to the area.  It's also surrounded by more than 200 trees.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and developer Larry Silverstein were on hand today to make sure everything is on schedule. The Freedom Tower is expected to open by 2013 and most of the construction in the area is expected to be complete by 2016.

Silverstein said "Today for the first time since 9/11 every part of the new World Trade Center is under construction. More than 3,000 construction workers shape millions of tons of concrete steel and glass into iconic buildings that will soon reclaim New York's skyline."
