9/11 couldn't kill tree

From 1010WINS:

Horizontal pathways of light-gray granite and cobblestone lead to the south reflecting pool and a single Callery Pear tree.

Daniels said the tree, known as the “survivor tree,” was found 95 percent destroyed on 9/11. It was also struck by lightning in 2010 even after being nursed to health in the Bronx.

“It’s a symbol of this country that was struck by lightning, the events of 9/11 — we’re still here, we’re still surviving,” Daniels said.
