WTC Steel Columns-- Heavy Metal
The memorial consists of two 11,000-pound beams from the Twin Towers. Behind the beams stand granite monuments with inscriptions and timelines of the events of 9/11/01. Perched atop one of the beams is a bronze, life-size sculpture of an American Bald Eagle, with wings outstretched and gazing east toward New York City.

I don't know what floors these are from but they aren't columns from the very base, for sure. This column has a good 4 inches of solid steel on the two sides.
Interesting to see this second column filled with cement along with 2-3 inches solid steel sides:
