The World Trade Center

The World Trade Center

The World Trade Center was built to draw attention to New York City and to stand as a symbol of that city’s place in the global community.  It became a symbol not only of New York, but also of American culture and prestige.  Tragically, the World Trade Center’s success as a symbol contributed to its downfall when terrorists targeted it for destruction on September 11, 2001.  This is the story of the life and death of one of the most recognized structures in the world.
