I visited Ground Zero again in August, and the viewing platform had been removed. Fulton Street, which once housed the viewing platform, was now lined with street vendors.

It is now possible to walk to the edges of Ground Zero.

It is also possible to see what is going on behind the fence.

This is what can be seen from this location:

You get different perspectives of Ground Zero if you make a left onto Church Street.

The best viewing area is no longer a platform, but rather the south side of Ground Zero, Liberty Street.

This area is protected by several more layers of fencing.

Still it is possible to see what the workers are doing.

Although progress is being made, some of the buildings along the south side of Ground Zero remain boarded and in disrepair.      

A few flowers appear along the fence, but the only memorial in this area is fenced off.
