Description
The World Trade Center (WTC) was an office complex in the Financial District on the southern tip of Lower Manhattan, New York City, which consisted of seven buildings and was opened in 1973. Its core element was the world-famous twin towers (Twin Towers, WTC 1 and 2). With 110 floors each of 417 and 415 meters high, they belonged to the tallest buildings in New York and shaped the skyline of the city.



As a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the twin towers and the WTC 7 collapsed completely. 2753 people died. The 72-meter-high WTC 3 was completely destroyed by falling debris from the collapsing twin towers. The WTC 4, which is home to the world's largest Warentermin exchange, the WTC 5 and the WTC 6, were so badly damaged that they were demolished later.



On the site known as Ground Zero, a new World Trade Center has been set up since 2006, consisting of six skyscrapers, an underground shopping mall and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum (One World Trade Center).
