NYC residents report hearing a spooky chilling chorus of voices coming from new One World Trade Center
The first reports came via social networks in late October 2012 during Hurricane Sandy. Puzzled New York City residents reported hearing a strange sound, described as a steady, consistent moaning noise, coming from One World Trade Center (formerly known as Freedom Towers). Users discussed the odd noise and decided it was the wind whistling through the top, unfinished floors of the new One World Trade Center tower. Then a few months later, another resident, New Yorker Kenny Cummings, reported hearing the strange sound – after the tower was substantially completed and the façade enclosed with glass. His “unmistakable and very chilling” recording captures the sound that has baffled New Yorkers since last year.
