City in the Sky: The Rise & Fall of the World Trade Center
James Glanz (au); Eric Lipton (au). The World Trade Center was the biggest & brashest icon that New York has ever produced -- a pair of magnificent giants that became intimately familiar around the globe. This vivid narrative re-creates David Rockefeller’s ambition to rebuild lower Manhattan, the spirited opposition of local storeowners & powerful politicians, & the bold structural innovations that later determined who lived & who died. Takes us into the charged & chaotic recovery operation that could have unraveled the secrets of the buildings’ collapse, but instead has left some enduring mysteries. The gripping story of how the twin towers fell -- a story of New York City in good times & bad, & a story of architectural daring, human frailty, & a lost American icon. Illus.
