The crash of the twin towers
Transcript of The crash of the twin towers
On a typical weekday 50,000 people worked in the towers with another 200,000 passing through as visitors. The complex was so large ] The towers offered expansive views from the observation deck atop the South Tower and the Windows on the World restaurant on top of the North Tower. The Twin Towers became known worldwide, appearing in numerous movies and television shows as well as on postcards and other merchandise, and became seen as a New York icon, in the same league as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the Statue of Liberty.
French high wire acrobatic performer Philippe Petit walked between the towers on a tightrope in 1974, as shown in the documentary film Man on Wire. Petit walked between the towers eight times on a steel cable that was laid out using a bow and arrow.
Brooklyn toymaker George Willig scaled the exterior of the south tower in 1977. In 1983, on Memorial Day, high-rise firefighting and rescue advocate Dan Goodwin successfully climbed the outside of the WTC's North Tower. His stunt was meant to call attention to the inability to rescue people potentially trapped in the upper floors of skyscrapers.
The 1995 PCA world chess championship was played on the 107th floor of the South Tower.
After years of delay and controversy, reconstruction at the World Trade Center site is now underway. The new complex includes One World Trade Center (formerly known as the Freedom Tower), 7 World Trade Center, three other high-rise office buildings, a museum and memorial, and a transportation hub similar in size to Grand Central Terminal. The One World Trade Center was completed on August 30, 2012, and the final component of its spire installed on May 10, 2013. The Four World Trade Center is on track for completion and occupancy by 2014. The 9/11 memorial is complete, and the museum opened on May 21, 2014.Three World Trade Center and the Transportation Hub are also making progress, and are set to be finished by around late 2017 and late 2015. respectively. Two World Trade Center's full construction was placed on hold in the early 2010s, until tenants are found.

The Twin Towers
The World Trade Center was more than its signature twin towers: it was a complex of seven buildings on 16-acres, constructed and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). The towers, One and Two World Trade Center, rose at the heart of the complex, each climbing more than 100 feet higher than the silver mast of the Empire State Building.
