To Jim Cramer, the story of the rebirth of the World Trade Center site is important not just for New Yorkers — but for all Americans.
"I think that one of the major themes that underlies my thinking of this is that [the rebuilding] was almost impossible to get done," he said. "There were so many different — and right — constituencies. … So what you're seeing here, in a very bizarre way, is masterful compromise."
Most viewers of CNBC's "Mad Money" recognize Cramer as a guide to navigate Wall Street investing. But in CNBC's newest documentary "Ground Zero Rising: Freedom vs. Fear," Cramer took on a different challenge: helping viewers navigate the complicated rebuilding of the World Trade Center.
"I wish every single school in the country could do a field trip here, so that people know, so that people don't forget," Cramer said.
