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

A beautiful aerial view of Lower Manhattan and its landmarks in March 1999. 250 Broadway, the Woolworth Building (also known as "The Cathedral of Commerce") and the Transportation Building in the center with St. Paul's Chapel and the Millenium Hilton Hotel to the left. The World Trade Center with its outstanding Twin Towers and the 47-story Building 7 appears in the background and to the right. Simple but modern International Style II, neo-Gothic and Renaissance Revival style, Art Deco - all these different types of architecture harmonize beautifully and make New York's cityscape so unique... This truly is one of my most favorite photographs! #wtc #oldwtc #wtctwintowers #northtower #southtower #worldtradecenter #wtc1 #wtc2 #twi#twintowersnyc #twintowers #wtc7 #woolworthbuilding #transportationbuilding #milleniumhiltonnyc #worldfinancialcenter #brookfieldplaceny #architecture #minoruyamasaki #cassgilbert #artdeco #nylandmarks #unique #bigapple #lowermanhattan #manhattan #new#newyorkskyline #newyork #neverforget

I thought I would post one more before I head to bed. I simply have always loved the #twintowers. They will always be my two most favorite buildings in all of the world. To me they represented strengths, resolve, and American exceptionalism. I miss seeing them in movies, on tv, and in the #new#newyorkskyline. #worldtradecenter #oneworldtadecenter #twoworldtradecenter #wtc #wtctransportationhub #wtccomplex #wtc1 #wtc2 #wtctwintowers #wtcnyc #worldtradecentertwintowers #newyorkcity #newyorkskyline #newyorkskyscrapers #nyc #nycskyline #nycskyscrapers #oldwtc #oldwtcantenna #downtownmanhattan #manhattan
