Lower Manhattan as seen from an helicopter on August 30, 2001. The World Trade Center complex with its majestic 110-story Twin Towers appears in the center with the World Financial Center in front at the Hudson River. Parts of the Woolworth Building and the Manhattan Bridge across the East River can be seen in the background, along with Brooklyn and Queens. 90 West Street (with scaffolding around its facade) is visible to the very right behind 1 World Financial Center. No one could have imagined that the city's two tallest buildings would collapse in a terrorist attack less than two weeks later... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowersnyc #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtcmarriotthotel #wtc7 #worldfinancialcenter #onelibertyplaza #90weststreet #batteryparkcity #financialdistrict #eastriver #man#manhattange #brooklyn #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkine #newyork2001 #skyscrapers #nylandmarks #nyhistory #bigapple #newyork

Today, 43 years ago, in the night of February 13, 1975, a three alarm fire broke out on 1 WTC's 11th floor. It was set by a custodian turned arsonist. The fire spread throughout about half of the offices of the floor and ignited the insulation of telephone cables on a cable shaft that ran vertically between floors. The buildings' only occupants at that time, cleaning and service personnel, were all evacuated without serious injury. 28 of the 125 firemen, fighting the fire, sustained injuries from heat and smoke. Only the 11th floor office area was burned, but extensive water damage occurred on the 9th and 10th floor and smoke damage extended as far as the 16th floor. The loss was estimated at $2,000,000. The blaze exposed two major weaknesses in the Center's fire-protection systems: there were no sprinklers in the building to extinguish the fire (as was true in most high-rises back then) and critical fireproofing was missing, allowing burning utility wires to spread the fire between the floors. What's more, the tower's core acted like a chimney, sending great plumes of smoke upward. There was no threat that the tower would collapse, but it was an early warning sign of just how unpredictable a fire in the sky could be. Following this major fire, the Port Authority decided to install sprinklers throughout the complex. By 1993, when the first attack occured, 85% of 1WTC and 93% of 2WTC had sprinklers installed... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowersnyc #twintowers #wtccomplex #otd #onthisday #architecture #nylandmarks #fire #skyscrapers #nyhistory #aerialview #woolworthbuilding #financialdistrict #portauthorityny #lowermanhattan #manhattan #hudsonriver #bigapple #new#newyork1970s #newyork

From the vault! I shot this in 1992 from the Empire State Building, on my 4x5 Cambo with 270mm lens, with Fuji Velvia. After shooting for about an hour, a number of security officers came over saying I was not allowed to do that. Considering I had a large case and heavy tripod, I smiled, packed and went on my way. It seems as if I shot it last night. #zalezphoto #wtcphotography #nycphoto #fujivelvia50 #fujifilmphotography #dtnyc #nycwtc #twintowers #wtctwintowers #studiomiami #studioflorida #com#commercialphotography #commercialphotography #commercialphotoshoot #commercialphotographymiami #commercialphotographychicago

Today, 54 years ago: A rare color photograph of the architectural model of the World Trade Center, which architect Minoru Yamasaki unveiled to the public on January 18, 1964. The planned complex would feature the two 110-story Twin Towers, a hotel (the design was later changed and the height was increased to 22 stories), three low-rise buildings (Northeast and Southeast Plaza Buildings and the U.S. Customshouse), an 5 acre Plaza at the towers' base and a underground shopping mall with connections to various mass transit facilities including the NYC Subway system and the Port Authority's PATH trains connecting Manhattan to New Jersey on the other side of the Hudson. The construction of the North Tower finally began 4 years later in August 1968... #onthisday #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtcmodel #architecturalmodel #architecture #nylandmarks #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #skyscrapers #nyhistory #history #unique #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkskyline #newyork1960s #newyork #bigapple #neverforget

Repost from @world_trade_center_history using @RepostRegramApp - The view looking down from the South Tower's Observation Deck on the 107th floor onto the Plaza with the Sphere, the North Tower (left), WTC 5 and 6 (right and center) and 7 World Trade Center with the U.S. Post Office on the right. This beautiful shot was taken by my uncle during his second visit to New York in August 1993 (6 months after the bombing). After the famous 58 seconds elevator ride (from the lobby to the 107th floor), visitors could enjoy the views from the indoor observatory at an height of 1,310 ft (400m). Two more escalators led to the "Top of the World", the outdoor viewing platform at an height of 1,377ft (420m). On clear days visitors could see up to 50 miles (80 km)! #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowersnyc #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtcplaza #austinjtobinplaza #thesphere #insidewtc #wtc5 #wtc7 #wtcobservationdeck #topoftheworldobservatory #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #skyscrapers #architecture #nylandmarks #bigapple #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkine #newyork #neverforget

Looking up at the majestic Twin Towers in December 1998. The famous "Peace on Earth" sculpture was put up during the holiday season every year after 1993 bombing and was located at the entrance to the Austin J.

A unique aerial view of Liberty Island and the landmark Statue of Liberty in May 1970. The skyline of Downtown Manhattan with the World Trade Center towers under construction appears in the background. The new Twin Towers beginning to dominate the skyline. The unfinished North Tower surpassed the 952 ft American International Building (today 70 Pine Street) by a few feet, making it the new tallest building in Downtown. The new 55 Water Street building is also under construction to the right of 1 New York Plaza. The urban renewal of Downtown's skyline takes shape... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtcconstruction #urbanrenewal #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkine #libertyisland #statueofliberty #brooklyn #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #architecture #skyscrapers #nylandmarks #nyhistory #bigapple #newyork1970s #newyork #neverforget

Flying over the World Trade Center complex during construction in January 1971. The North Tower was topped out at 1,368 ft a month earlier on December 23, 1970 and became the tallest building in the world, while the South Tower reached the area around the 70th/72nd floor. This perspective offers a great view of the 5 acre plaza during construction and the later location of the fountain and the Sphere. A part of the landfill created with 1,200,000 cubic yards (920,000 m3) of excavated material (along with other fill and drege material) during the Trade Center's early construction can be seen in the background - the old piers disappeared... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #wtc6 #twi#twintowersnyc #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtcplaza #austinjtobinplaza #wtcconstruction #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #architecture #nylandmarks #skyscrapers #weststreetny #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkine #newyork1970s #nyhistory #bigapple #newyork #neverforget

WTC architect Minoru Yamasaki would have turned 105 years today. I want to commemorate him with his quote about his World Trade Center: "World Trade means World Peace...a World Trade Center is a living symbol of man's dedication to world peace...a representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men, and, through cooperation, his ability to find greatness". Fortunately Yamasaki didn't witness his World Trade Center towers destroyed in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 - he died of stomach cancer in February 1986 at age 73... PIC 1: The Twin Towers as seen from the corner of Liberty and Church Streets in March 2000. PIC 2: Minoru Yamasaki looks over his 8-foot model of the WTC complex during presentation to the public on January 18, 1964. #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtc4 #architecture #nylandmarks #wtcmodel #architecturalmodel #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #skyscrapers #libertystreetnyc #nyhistory #history #onthisday #lowermanhattan #manhattan #bigapple #quote #new#newyork2000 #newyork #neverforget

A beautiful aerial view of Lower Manhattan in March 1981. A month earlier, late on the night of February 20, twenty years before the events of 9/11, an Aerolíneas Argentinas Boeing 707, flying in the night's dense fog and rain, descended too early to 1,500 feet, instead of 2,700 feet on approach to John F. Kennedy Airport. The 58 passengers and crew members were less than 90 seconds from the Twin Towers when an altitude radar alarm sounded in the air-traffic-control facility. "Argentine 342, what's your altitude?" controller Donald Zimmermann asked. "One thousand, five hundred" came the reply - 200 feet lower than the North Tower's television antenna. "Argentine 342, turn immediately right heading one eight zero" Zimmermann ordered. "Climb. Climb immediately. Maintain 3,000." he frantically continued his emergency instructions. Moments later, the crew radioded that the plane had climbed safely to 3,000 feet. It was such a close call that Zimmermann went out on traumatic-injury leave... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #onelibertyplaza #woolworthbuilding #municipalbuilding #aerialview #aerolineas #plane #hudsonriver #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkskyline #nylandmarks #architecture #bigapple #newyork1980s #nyhistory #newyork

That breathtaking view of the two majestic towers from the entrance to the Austin J. Tobin Plaza at Church Street in April 1999. Repeated walks around the Empire State Building helped determine another basic choice in the WTC's design. The Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world. But when you strolled the sidewalks near its base, Minoru Yamasaki noted, you could almost miss it. The Trade Center would be different. "There was a wish and a need to be able to stand back from it, to see and comprehend its height", Yamasaki wrote. These prerequisites - which happened to coincide exactly with the Port Authority's wishes - dictated that the project had to start with a vast empty lot, the interior streets eliminated, and that the building or buildings would rise from a broad, open plaza... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #wtcmarriotthotel #wtcplaza #austinjtobinplaza #architecture #nylandmarks #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #worldfinancialcenter #brookfieldplaceny #batteryparkcity #empirestatebuilding #nyhistory #bigapple #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkskyline #newyork #neverforget911

A beautiful shot of Lower Manhattan, dominated by the Twin Towers in April 1995. In the same year, Frank Lombardi, a Port Authority engineer, discovered that the fireproofing on the floor trusses of the Twin Towers was only half as thick as it should have been (the average thickness of spray-applied fireproofing on the trusses was 3/4 inch). He set about trying to fix the problem, though somewhat randomly: he ordered crews to apply new fireproofing each time renovations resulted in the opening up of the ceilings. By September 11, 2001, a total of 31 stories had been upgraded, including the entire impact zone in WTC 1 (floors 94 - 98), but only the 78th floor in the impact zone of WTC 2 (floors 78 - 84). Most of the fireproofing was knocked off by the impacts of the planes on 9/11, according to PA officials, but other experts say that the additional fireproofing in the North Tower may have been able to at least retard the fire there: the conflagration in the South Tower was, as it appeared, the more furious of the two... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #worldfinancialcenter #brookfieldplaceny #batteryparkcity #financialdistrict #woolworthbuilding #architecture #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #nylandmarks #skyscrapers #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkskyline #newyork #nyc #bigapple #neverforget

The unobstructed view of the majestic Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in August 1981. The latest addition to the WTC complex, the 22-story Vista International Hotel, had opened its doors a month earlier in July of the same year - the first time since 1836 that a hotel opened in Lower Manhattan. The first residential buildings (Gateway Plaza) on the landfill in front of the towers, the future Battery Park City, are nearly completed. Construction of César Pellis World Financial Center would also start later that year. The urban renewal of Lower Manhattan is in full swing... #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowers/a> #twintowers #wtccomplex #architecture #nylandmarks #minoruyamasaki #portauthorityny #batteryparkcity #skyscrapers #nyhistory #urbanrenewal #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkskyline #newyork1980s #bigapple #newyork #neverforget #missthisview
