“Have you ever heard from neighbors about the wailing World Trade Center?” emailed Kenny Cummings. “I live a couple of blocks from the tower, and first heard this very eerie sound during Hurricane Sandy last year.” You weren’t the only one. “I’ve heard it only once afterwards, sometime last winter. I assumed once the building’s framework and windows went in, the airflow would be redirected. At 3:15 a.m. Wednesday morning, I awoke to the sound. It was slightly different in timbre, with two tones this time. I couldn’t be sure what it was at first, but after a moment I realized it was the Trade Center. Outside it was raining but the trees were calm. I can only imagine at that height the weather is different. I’m sure all of downtown hears this—it’s unmistakable and very chilling. I had to get up and record it. [You can hear it especially well around :20.] It seemed to calm down about 5 a.m.”
Anyone else out there noticing the sound?
