4 World Trade Center
New York’s bravest on Monday hosted the first annual New York City Firefighter Stair Climb, raising money for two groups in need.
The fastest male contender reached the 72nd floor in just under nine minutes. The first woman to the finish floor clocked in at just over 11 minutes.
About 700 participants will race up the 72-story 4 WTC to benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
Designed by architect Fumihiko Maki, 4 World Trade Center is 72 stories high and 2.5 million square feet and features waterfalls, lush trees and blue skies.
Officials are planning a ribbon-cutting ceremony next Wednesday for 4 World Trade, an elegant 978-foot building, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Fumihiko Maki.
The finishing touches are now being put on the $4 billion symbol of American rebirth, One World Trade Center.
A crane lifting a beam broke some windows at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza at 4 World Trade Center today.
The Fire Department says some of the beams fell on an unoccupied trailer. A construction worker nearby was looked at by emergency responders, but was not taken to the hospital.
