The World Trade Center was a complex in Lower Manhattan whose seven buildings were
destroyed in 2001 in the September 11 attacks. The site is currently being rebuilt with six new
skyscrapers and a memorial to the casualties of the attacks.
The original World Trade Center was designed by Minoru Yamasaki in the early 1960s using a
tube-frame structural design for the twin 110-story towers. In gaining approval for the project, the
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey agreed to take over the Hudson & Manhattan
Railroad which became the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH). Groundbreaking for the World
Trade Center took place on August 5, 1966. The North Tower (1) was completed in December
1970 and the South Tower (2) was finished in July 1971. Construction of the World Trade Center
involved excavating a large amount of material which was used in making Battery Park City on
the west side of Lower Manhattan
On September 11, 2001, suicide hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern
facade of the North Tower at 8:46 a.m., followed seventeen minutes later by a second team of
hijackers who crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the South Tower. The damage caused to
the North Tower by Flight 11 destroyed any means of escape from above the impact zone,
trapping 1,344 people while as many as 600 people were killed instantly or were trapped at or

fire which caused steel structural elements, already weakened from the plane impact, to fail. The
North Tower collapsed at 10:28, after burning for approximately 102 minutes.
At 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001, 7 World Trade Center collapsed due to uncontrolled fires
causing structural failureWorld Trade Center, a Marriott hotel, was destroyed during the collapse
of the two towers. The three remaining buildings in the WTC plaza sustained heavy damage from
debris and were ultimately demolished. The Deutsche Bank Building across Liberty Street from
the World Trade Center complex was later condemned due to the uninhabitable toxic conditions
inside; it is undergoing deconstruction. The Borough of Manhattan Community College's
Fiterman Hall at 30 West Broadway was also condemned due to extensive damage in the attacks
and is slated for deconstruction
In the aftermath of the attacks, media reports suggested that tens of thousands might have been
killed in the attacks, as on any given day upwards of 50,000 people could be inside the towers.
Ultimately, 2,750 death certificates were filed relating to the 9/11 attacks, including one filed for
Felicia Dunn-Jones, who was added to the official death toll in May 2007; Dunn-Jones died
five months after 9/11 from a lung condition linked to exposure to dust during the collapse of the
World Trade Center Cantor Fitzgerald L.P., an investment bank on the 101st–105th floors of One
World Trade Center, lost 658 employees, considerably more than any other employer, while
Marsh & McLennan Companies, located immediately below Cantor Fitzgerald on floors 93–101
(the location of Flight 11's impact), lost 295 employees, and 175 employees of Aon Corporation
were killed. As well, 343 deaths were New York City firefighters, 84 were Port Authority
employees, of whom 37 were members of the Port Authority Police Department, and another 23
were New York City Police Department officers of all the people who were still in the towers
when they collapsed, only 20 were pulled out alive.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda-affiliated hijackers flew two 767 jets into the
complex, one into each tower, in a coordinated suicide attack. After burning for 59 minutes, the
South Tower (2) collapsed, followed a half-hour later by the North Tower (1), with the attacks on
the World Trade Center resulting in 2,750 deaths. 7 World Trade Center collapsed later in the day
and the other buildings, though they didn't collapse, had to be demolished because they were
damaged beyond repair. The process of cleanup and recovery at the World Trade Center site took
eight months. The first new building at the site was 7 World Trade Center which opened in May
