Sept. 11 Hijackers' Florida Apartment Demolished

FOX News

An abandoned apartment building in Hollywood, Florida where two of the September 11 hijackers lived for several months before the attack was demolished Friday.

A crowd gathered to watch the building in Jackson Street be torn down, Fox reported.

"It's almost like it was a monster's lair and I don't think anybody would want to live in a place like that," demolition expert Darren Fradin said.
"We're happy to take this thing down," he said. "We understand there used to be some monsters that lived in this place."

Not long after hijackers flew two planes into New York City's World Trade center towers in 2001, police descended on the Florida property gathering evidence.

Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi lived there from May to June 2001 before their suicide mission, Fox reported.

The property developer intends to turn the area into a parking lot and a community pool.

Comments from neighbors from South

"It's good to see it go. Get rid of the karma," said neighbor Phil Cook.

Clad in a Sept. 11 memorial shirt, Nancy Tappen appeared with a walker and a camera to snap a shot of Apartment 3A, the second-floor unit where the terrorists lived. "It's a part of history, right?" she said. "A bad part."

Virginia Bourgeois, from a block away, stood in the sun and contemplated the crumpled building Atta once called home.

"To think he was right there — my God," she said. "But he's gone and it's gone."

Noreen Buchbinder, owner of a nearby pizzeria, lauded the building's demise. "It's a way of getting back," she said.
