This covers the 102 minutes from the initial impact at World Trade Center #1, the North Tower, to its collapse 102 minutes later. The focus is on survivors, how people managed. There is also much information here of relevance, particularly about how the city construction code was subverted to allow the Trade Center’s design, one that included an insufficient number of stairways, insufficient and untested insulation, and placement of stairs in a way that was vociferously opposed by the fire department.
