Flashback: 9/11 and the gold in the NY Federal Reserve

Flashback: 9/11 and the gold in the NY Federal Reserve

by Jon Rappoport

January 30, 2014


With reports that Germany can’t get back much of its gold stored in the NY Federal Reserve, I remembered what I was writing just after 9/11.

Here are a few quotes. Most are from my posts on 9/11 and 9/12, 2001:




Still no word on the condition of the NY Federal Reserve Bank, which is 2.5 blocks away from the destroyed WTC. This bank, underground, holds $75 billion in gold from [about five] dozen countries.”

CNN has a large map posted today, which shows the condition of a number of buildings by name in the area, but, curiously, the NY Fed Reserve is not one of them.”

And now that workers are going down underneath the remains of the WTC, where $100 million in gold is admittedly stored (Reuters), we have no word on the condition of that gold, either.”

Yesterday, I brought up the issue of the gigantic fed gold reserve stashed underground 2.5 blocks from the WTC. And mentioned that no press accounts were covering damage to nearby buildings. Which I find odd.”

Here is an account from [a reader] on the ground in NYC, as of an hour ago. ‘It seems like we are getting the same limited [TV] shot on all networks…kind of a tight angle shot of damage of the base of the towers…no shots of damage to nearby buildings, including the gold reserve building. No one knows anything because the whole island [of Manhattan] has been shut down below 14th St. Camera crews not allowed to wander. If you live below 14th St. and you leave your apartment you need identification in order to get back in.’”

The WTC took up several blocks in lower Manhattan. From the Liberty Street side, it is about 2 blocks to the Fed Reserve Bank of NY, at 33 Liberty St. Under the Bank, 5 levels down, in bedrock, is the $75 billion in gold.”

The NY Federal Reserve keeps a facility for storing gold in NYC. It handles the gold reserves of about five dozen countries. $75 billion in a vault. About 1/4 of the world’s gold supply. At least, that’s the Fed Reserve press release on this, from 1999. This vault is located close to the WTC, where the towers fell. Is it [the vault] buried? Is the vault open? Anyone see Die Hard 3? A gigantic terrorist ‘diversion’ leading to the theft of all the gold in the vault.”

In the days following 9/11, I also wrote that there were no reports or video of troops guarding the NY Federal Reserve building. This was very curious. 75 billion in gold and no troops present? Nor have I found any video from that time, later posted on YouTube, showing troops around the Fed Reserve.

There is debate about whether a tunnel existed connecting the basement of the old WTC and the basement of the Federal Reserve. A 2010 piece at Cryptome indicates (with photos) that, during the post-9/11 WTC cleanup, an old railroad tunnel between the WTC and Fed Reserve basements was uncovered. (Diehard 3 featured such a tunnel and track.)

The Matrix Revealed

Was the Fed Reserve gold taken away after 9/11?

Or had it been taken before 9/11? Perhaps long before.

Clearly, in the immediate wake of 9/11, there was a concerted press effort to omit or limit mention of the Federal Reserve building.

On March 2, 2013, Tyler Durden, writing at zerohedge.com, in Why Is JPMorgan’s Gold Vault, The Largest In The World, Located Next To The New York Fed’s?, reported his finding that “the de facto largest private gold vault in the world [is] located across the street [from the NY Federal Reserve building] 90 feet below 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza.”

This private vault, at the same level as the NY Fed Reserve vault, could front right up against it.

The private vault belongs to JP Morgan Chase. It is larger than a football field.

Under circumstances deemed “essential,” it would appear to be easy to transfer an enormous amount of gold from the Fed Reserve to JP Morgan Chase.

Silverdoctors.com reports that a US Treasury Dept. audit of all US gold reserves inadvertently exposed a total figure of 466 tons, far less than previous claims of 8,133 tons.

Anyone trusting that US-held gold reserves are safe and sound needs to examine his own head.

    In my opinion? thanks to Larry Silverstein et al all that gold is resting comfortably in a vault in ISRAEL somewhere, no extradition from our “democratic friends” in occupied Palestine.

  3. Robert says:

    Jon, years ago back in the 60’s Coin World Newspaper published photos of the Fed Vaults and
    they stated that the photos ‘ show the many vaults UNDER THE HUDSON RIVER”. I have contacted Coin World and they have told me they do not have those photos.anymore.

  4. Nicole says:

    One of the ‘truther’ movies that I watched about 9/11 mentioned that people in the World Trade Center were hearing noises on the floor above them, like the sound of heavy machinery moving, and dropping, large heavy objects , in the days before the attack, and in the movie they said it sounded like gold bars (they speculated that that’s what it sounded like). If I understand correctly, they were saying that gold had been stored in the WTC, above ground, and it was being removed before the attacks occurred. I don’t remember the name of this movie though.

  5. Captain says:

    If you recall, the day they recovered all the gold bullion from WTC Tower 1(?), the mayor, Guilliani, immediately called off the search for survivors. The Firemen refused. Guilliani and Police Commissioner Kelly(?) then called the police out to remove the Firemen. There was a riot.

    Odd fact: Guilliani was doing ‘special drills’ at a building adjacent to WTC are at the same time the planes hit. He was also in London ‘aiding special forces’ in drills in the Tube (subway) – in the same station and at the same time that it was bombed. Connect the dots.

    See Veterans Today reports for more about the gold and 9/11.

    day, btw.

    And… has anyone in NSA acted on this to get Bush and Co arrested? NO. They are Bush and Cheney appointed staff – likely created to keep their crimes hidden. Again, connect the dots. And follow the money.

      Well put. Problem is, the denizens of this dying republic have lost the ability for objective/critical thinking and are no longer able to “connect dots”. It was, in all likelihood, deigned an unnecessary skill and therefor the Dept. of “Education” removed it from curriculum to make room for “My Two Dads” being taught in the elementary school classrooms. Go figure.

    I recall reading an (alleged ) eye witness report from a woman who claims she saw heavily guarded armored trucks being loaded with gold around 5 AM on 9/11/2001 – the street was closed to passage. This report may still be floating around on the net but t’would be hard to verify and if verified so effing what?

    After studying this for years IMO 9-11 was the mother of all political, intelligence, technological and financial windfalls for TPTB, at once ridding them of multiple problems, creating financial windfalls and allowing them to test out their exotic energy weaponry as well as their abilities to manipulate public perceptions – win-win-win-win – only the world’s sheeple lost.

    Here is more on the Nova Scotia vault below “4 World Trade Center”… in this grey lady report…

    A NATION CHALLENGED: THE VAULT; Below Ground Zero, Silver and Gold
    Published: November 1, 2001


    Bonus-1: Beneath the Customs House — 6 World Trade Center — a BATF weapons and drug cache.

    Bonus-2: “Correction: November 7, 2001, Wednesday An article on Thursday about property of the C.I.A. and the Secret Service buried at the World Trade Center site misstated the nearby location of the two agencies’ former offices. While the agencies stored vehicles beneath the Custom House, at 6 World Trade Center, their offices were in No. 7.”

  8. CRP says:

    I read somewhere just after this FF that they found a dump truck full of gold in the rubble. Too long ago to remember where.

  9. theodorewesson says:

    That Tyler Durden is definitely worth the read.

    And at the bottom of that article is this….

    FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2001. By Jon Rappoport


    Partial update on the underground gold in NYC. Reuters reports that about 12 tons are buried far below the rubble at the WTC and are safe, unless, as one bank spokesperson stated, “it melted.”

    ADD: Remarking that delivery of such gold upon purchase by commodity investors might be delayed a little–and is no problem because these investors are buying futures–the spokesperson said a curious thing. Needed gold could be brought in from other places…BUT there was no mention of the biggest gold cache around. The $75 billion in gold 2.5 blocks away from the WTC 5 floors underground at the NY Fed Reserve Bank.

    ADD: I have been writing about this cache since the attack on the WTC. No reports are coming out of NY on THIS gold, or on what must be extraordinary efforts in place to guard it.

    ADD: The movie Die Hard 3 was built around induced chaos in NYC by terrorists who then carried out a plan to hi-jack the $75 billion in gold from that very underground facility at the NY Fed Reserve. Movies don’t imply that real life follows suit, but it does make one wonder. ADD: Hopefully, more later.

    While researching the seismic activity records for NYC on the morning of 9/11, another researhcer and I noticed that were a number of small seismic spikes before the “Twin Tower attacks”. One big spike early in the morning, followed by multiple small spikes on a regular basis every few minutes. IMHO, the big spike (the first one) was blowing open the main door to a vault, with the small spikes blowing open interior doors/gates.

    here’s another problem Jon….the american sheeple: “that’s SOOO 15 minutes ago… and hey, ‘gold’? under the buildings? (using the uptalk end of sentence inflection) what gold????….. what’s GOLD got to do with anything? people were jumping out windows and all u care about is the gold”? can somebody tell me, what christmas is all about????

    • Clem Kididdlehoffer says:

      There was and has been reports of the disappearance of gold from beneath and the vicinity- the reports gave the indication and understanding that it was stolen or absconded with, which I suppose, would be the same thing. Thanks Jon, i id’d with your early recollection of “we don’t say ‘ok’ we say ‘all right’….your take on that at the time, and my early experiences growing up in in NJ. starkly similar…
