History:
The World Trade Center was conceived in the early 1960s by the Downtown-Lower Manhattan Development Association to bring a halt to the decline of lower Manhattan. The twin towers of the World Trade Center were more than just buildings. They were proof of New York’s belief in itself.

Construction began in 1966.In order to create the 16-acre World Trade Center site, five streets were closed off and 164 buildings were demolished. The north tower was opened in Dec. 1970 and the south tower in Jan. 1972; they were dedicated in April 1973.
