wow that picture really puts the enormity and scale of the towers into context... monuments of the 20th century, truly, and a poignant testament to those who built and worked in them

I made it up there three times before 9/11 - the last time was early August, 2001. I took lots of video inside and out. I even filmed the video that they showed in the theater which was basically a lot of helicopter flybys of the towers and NYC.

It's sad looking at that footage, seeing all the people who worked at the observation area and wonder how many of them were working that day . . .

One thing I remember about the number of times I have been there, is that you take the elevator from the lobby halfway up, and then you switch to another elevator to continue up to the 107th floor of either tower.
