WORLD TRADE CENTER (SOUTH TOWER)

by lauren neman

History Behind It

Both of the World Trade Centers were designed and constructed by David Rockafeller. Rockefeller believed that the trade center, which would include office and hotel space, an exhibit hall, a securities and exchange center and numerous shops, would be just the thing to stimulate economic growth in the New York area. It was built on August 5, 1996. The World Trade Center was attacked on 9/11 when hijacked American planes crashed into each building. Both building fell to ruins and were destroyed. The attack killed many Americans and left families and friends devestated.
