Iwalked New York City's Former Twin Towers - Some four hundred fifty companies were previously headquartered within the seven building complex of the original World Trade Center (WTC). The two most noted buildings were, of course, 1 WTC and 2 WTC or also referred to as Towers 1 and 2, or the Twin Towers. Upon completion of the one hundred ten storied twin towers in 1970-1971 they stood as the tallest buildings in the world before being surpassed by Chicago’s Sears Tower in 1973.
The official death toll was recently restated as 2,751 in 2009 after a long missing doctor was added to toll following a study which concluded no other explanation for his disappearance. Of those who perished three hundred forty-three were NYC Fire Department firefights and twenty-three were NYC police department officers.
