An abandoned apartment building in Hollywood, Florida where two of the September 11 hijackers lived for several months before the attack was demolished Friday, MyFox National reported.

A crowd gathered to watch the building in Jackson Street be torn down, MyFox Phoenix reported.

"It's almost like it was a monster's lair and I don't think anybody would want to live in a place like that," demolition expert Darren Fradin said.

"We're happy to take this thing down," he said. "We understand there used to be some monsters that lived in this place."

Not long after hijackers flew two planes into New York City's World Trade center towers in 2001, police descended on the Florida property gathering evidence.

Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi lived there from May to June 2001 before their suicide mission, MyFox Phoenix reported.

The property developer intends to turn the area into a parking lot and a community pool.
