A college building in lower Manhattan that was destroyed on September 11, 2001 is finally reopening.

Students at Borough of Manhattan Community College will return to Fiterman Hall this semester for the first time since much of lower Manhattan was devastated in the terrorist attacks.

For the last 11 years many students were forced to attend class in trailers along the West Side Highway.

The new building includes eighty classrooms, an art gallery and a music ensemble room.
