Census shows growth near ground zero

The latest Census figures show the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan has turned into a population boom.

The number of people near ground zero has roughly doubled since the 9/11 attacks.

That makes it one of the fastest growing places in the city.

One reason for the boom is the many banks that have moved uptown.

Their old office spaces have been converted to apartments.
