Was she a skyscraper-fan too?

Why aren't here 7-19 and 94-99 floors?
Please don't hit pranks about my "know-not-much" but what does that "there aren't these floors mean"? Are the floors empty or just what?

94-99 were the impact floors in the original 1WTC, I assume this is why they were omitted in the new tower.

You're right Chapelo. It will be the same for 2WTC.
But I never heard about 7-19 floors.

From wtcprogress,


"Construction scaffolds in lobby of One WTC cover approx 20,000 square feet, & stands 60ft high."

Yes, as long as it doesn't interfers ducts or the structural integrity of the floor slab. Vantone is locating a staircase just a few feet from curtain wall on floors 64-65 I believe.

That's just the stupid way the Port Authority decided to number it just so it would make everyone think there are over 100 floors. 7-19 are included in the base because the base is almost 20 normal stories. 94-99 are included in the mechanical floors because they are taller in height than the typical office floors.

If you don't mind me asking but, did you work in the towers at the time of 9/11?

Yes, I was on vacation that week, but would have been there otherwise. The company I worked for occupied floors 93-100 of 1. My desk was on the 99th floor. We lost about 350 people, our offices were directly in the impact zone of Flight 11. Still hurts to this day.

I really do hope that all the communication antennas that have been stuck on the Empire State Building will be replaced on the new 1WTC communication ring and mast because that cluster of antennas on the Empire State just looks absolutely disgusting and unkempt.

They were above us on 101-105, and lost about 600 people. I was with Marsh and McLennan.
