Fakten

  • Construction of the complex reportedly began in 1966 when the first concrete was poured into the trench for a telephone vault. Construction costs were an estimated $1.5 billion.
  • Excavation to bedrock 70 feet below produced the material for the Battery Park City landfill project in the Hudson River.
  • The gigantic office complex of never-before-seen proportions was created as a "catalyst" to revitalize Lower Manhattan and attract major companies back into Downtown.
  • The enormous complex removed from the street map several streets such as West Broadway, Greenwich and Fulton streets, and wiped out an entire neighborhood called "Radio Row" which was famous for its thrift stores for used electronics.
  • When complete, the center met with mixed reviews, but at 1,368 and 1,362 feet and 110 stories each, the twin towers were the world's tallest buildings – until the Willis Tower surpassed them both in 1974.
  • The World Trade Center was more than its signature twin towers: it was a complex of seven buildings covering 16 acres, constructed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
  • The World Trade Center was destroyed in large parts during the September 2001 terrorist attacks on the city.
  • Please open the link of New World Trade Center to see the new towers that are being constructed.
