"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security" 🇺🇸🦅

-President Thomas Jefferson

This photo, taken at sunrise in 1972, is a rare and beautiful look at the towers under construction the year before the WTC’s ceremonial opening on April 4, 1973.

The 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...

My World Trade Center model is nearing completion, only the final details, have yet to be done...

Special thanks to: Angus Kress Gillespie, author of the book "The life of of New York's World Trade Center".

By reading it, I've learned that the architectural beauty of the WTC Twin Towers is easy to underestimate, and the size of the project, that was actually impossible for this time(nineteen-sixties).

Solving the problems paved the way for the 'super skyscraper' that is still used in all 'supertall skyscrapers' all over the world today.

The complete complex contained 7 buildings, not just the Twin Towers (WTC-1 and 2), a hotel (WTC-3), a shopping mall, a subway system (PATH, Port Authority Trans-Hudson), the largest and highest observation deck in the world, their own police and emergency command center (WTC-7), an 85-foot (26m) underground parking garage and mechanical floors "The Bathtub".

The original WTC was not just a building, it was a city in a city, that says enough about a building in a metropolis the size of New York City.

The tradegedy of 9/11 was above all the loss of innocent human life. But it was also the loss of a unique and innovative architecture, the loss of symbols, and a unique syline. But those lives and the Towers are linked together. I created this page to honor and remember all those aspects, the innocent people, the buildings, the city and especially the firefighters who climbed up the stairs in an effort to save as many people as possible, giving their own lives in the process. May the beauty in these pictures bring back memories of love and give an appropriate ode, to The life of New York's World trade center.
