    NEW YORK — Employees of former tenants at the World Trade Center will be able to access a Web site aimed at returning about 6,000 personal photos recovered from the trade center rubble after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has announced. The Web site first was made available to family members of the deceased victims of the attack earlier this year and then to Port Authority employees who were headquartered at the World Trade Center. The Port Authority owns the trade center site. The photos, collected after Sept. 11, 2001, were restored by Kodak employees and were given identifying numbers. They are in the custody of the New York Police Department's property division, which is handling claims for them. To access the Web site, an employee of a former tenant may log on to http://www.panynj.gov/wtci and enter a username and a password. The username is the first three letters of the individual's first name and the full last name. The password is a combination of the World Trade Center building number and primary floor to which the individual was assigned. General instructions on how to navigate the site are provided after logging on.
