World Trade Center
The World Trade Center is also known as "Twin Towers." The World Trade Center was completed in the 1970s. It was started in 1966. At least 70,000 people worked at the World Trade Center. About 70,000 people came to visit each day. Both towers were each 110 stories high. There were restaurants at the World Trade Center. The World Trade Center took $400,000,000 to build. Tower 1 was completed in 1972. Tower 2 was completed in 1973. Each tower had 104 passenger elevators,
But on one horrible day on September 11, 2001, the towers were targets of terrorist acts. They were struck by two planes without warning. Many people were killed, workers, visitors, fireman, policeman, etc. It is a day that will live in infamy.
But the good that came out of this is that it showed other countries that the Unted States could build up and be stronger than they were before with such a disaster.
