I was driving by today and it was a gorgeous morning that almost reminded me of September 11th a decade ago....I was wondering, when did the Newark Air Traffic Control tower open? I seem to recall it was either shortly before or after the attacks...Either way, I was wondering if the current ATC Tower was the same one in use the morning of 9/11?

The new tower began operations in early 2002. The building was substantially completed by 9/11 but it took some time for the FAA to install, calibrate, and test all the equipment before decommissioning the old facility.

JFK's has been gone a long time. When was EWR's taken down? Where did it used to be?

The old tower was torn down sometime in 2002/3. The "Ballpark" ramp and adjacent deice pad (where most CO widebodies at EWR spend their days in between flights) is the site of the former tower and operational facility.

The old tower was probably within a few meters of here
