Overview
The World Trade Center Through Time addresses the fascinating architectural and cultural history behind the evolution and construction of the Twin Towers. Adorned with period illustrations, the book takes readers on the remarkable journey that brought the Twin Towers to life in Lower Manhattan, from the early twentieth-century world of New York City's Radio Row through the towers' emergence as the city's most visible iconography. The World Trade Center Through Time traces the larger-than-life personalities who shared in the complex's vision and construction, including Governor Thomas E. Dewey, David Rockefeller, Mayor John Lindsay, Port Authority Director Austin J. Tobin, and celebrated architect Minoru Yamasaki. From the Twin Towers' heyday as Lower Manhattan's commercial and social hub through its indelible linkage with terrorism in the new century, The World Trade Center Through Time captures the Twin Towers' enduring place as an American touchstone.
