the lobby looks nice, but the office spaces look creepy for some reason.

OMG, I'm the same way! I took my last pictures of them a week before just so I would have them. I took them from the Jersey City side, my home, right where the light rail line was being built. It was deserted at the time with all the construction but I snuck over there to get the great straight on view! That cluster of buildings is where the towers used to be. Over to the right is the harbor and Liberty Square Park where they brought the victims.

There was a little mall and a big newstand before you got to the PATH train. There were elevators that went up and up. I remember my first visit at 10 years old and we thought our ears were going to explode going up but the view was soooooooo worth it. Windows on the World was a beautiful restaurant with impossibly beautiful views of the city.

My favorite thing was to go at rush hour and watch the suits scramble for their trains down this insanely long stretch of escalators. Some movies have shot there because they were so long and dramatic. I think I can find an old Lil' Kim video with her in the hall and on the long stairs. Forgive the roughness!

Probably because it was done in the 70s. Offices are a LOT cooler now.

No, fortunately, it hadn't opened yet.

I got my first cell phone in early 2001. Color was available, but I didn't want to spend the extra money for it.

I had a little blue Nokia. Green screen. I used to play 'worm' on it, LOL! Most people didn't have cell phones yet. Flat screens weren't around either, or if they were, too expensive for most offices.

Flat screens were available back in '98, but they were small and extremely expensive. The response time was also very slow so they weren't good for video or gaming.
