The Bank of New York has reopened its 101 Barclay Street technology and operations centre, which was badly damaged by the collapse of the World Trade Centre on 11 September, 2001.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the event was hosted by chairman and chief executive officer Thomas Renyi and included Governor George Pataki. Remarks were sent by President George W. Bush, Senator Charles Schumer, Senator Hillary Clinton, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
In a speech, Renyi stated: "For The Bank of New York, staying in lower Manhattan and returning to this building was never in doubt. I want to recognise the strength, courage and resiliency of the thousands of Bank of New York employees who together completed one of the largest business recoveries ever undertaken."
