Response to geralmar (Original post)

1. I was working at 220 Fifth Ave

And all the TV stations went off the air except the one that still had it its tower on the Empire State Building.

Cracked and dropped pieces of the ceiling of the room I was working in -- 12th floor about 1-1/2 miles from WTC.

The original WTC towers were not especially well built. They compromised structure for windows and rentable floor space. It is tough to build over 65 stories without a wider base like the Empire State building. Rock Center is about 65 stories and that's why.
