NEW YORK – A day after the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg touted the progress the World Trade Center site -and all of Lower Manhattan – has made in 12 years, but warned of future terror threats.

Bloomberg said when he took office in January 2002 the ruins of the World Trade Center were still smouldering and that there was real worry that the city would not be able to recover from the crippling economic and emotional blows delivered by the disaster.
