The original World Trade Center opened in New York City in 1973. The most famous part of the complex of buildings was the Twin Towers. They were named because there were almost exactly the same. The only difference is that one had a tall antenna on the top.

最初的世界贸易中心于1973年在纽约市开业。建筑群中最著名的部分是双子塔。 之所以命名,是因为它们几乎完全相同。 唯一的区别是顶部有一个高天线。

When they were built, the 1,368-foot tall buildings were the tallest in the world. Such tall buildings needed a way for people to travel in them. The towers had 95 elevators in total. Visitors used to travel to the 107th and 110th floors, where there were observation decks from which one could see the entire city and New Jersey. Inside there were offices, shops, a hotel, and on the top floor of one of the towers there was a restaurant called "Windows on the World". The restaurant even hosted a salsa night on Thursdays. A number of subway lines ran underneath the towers. The World Trade Center Complex, with a total of seven buildings, was so large that it had its own zip code. In 1974 a French man walked a tightrope between the twin towers.

建成时,这座1,368英尺高的建筑是世界上最高的。 如此高的建筑物需要人们在其中旅行的方式。 这些塔总共有95部电梯。 访客过去经常前往第107层和第110层,那里有观景台,从那里可以看到整个城市和新泽西。 里面有办公室,商店,旅馆,在其中一个塔楼的顶层有一个名为“世界之窗”的餐厅。 餐厅甚至在周四举办了萨尔萨舞之夜。 塔楼下方有许多地铁线路。 世贸中心大楼共有七座建筑物,面积如此之大,以至于拥有自己的邮政编码。 1974年,一个法国人在双子塔之间走钢丝。

The World Trade Center survived a bombing in 1993. The skyline and spirit of New York City were changed after September 11, 2001. That morning, two planes crashed into the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan. At first the top floors of the buildings were in flames. Soon they came tumbling down, covering lower Manhattan in hot metal and ash. A total of 2,753 people died. For weeks the air smelled of burnt metal and plastic. It took eight months for the site to be cleaned. Years later, The World Trade Center is rebuilding. There is a new tower, called the Freedom Tower. There is also a memorial and museum to honor those who died in the 2001 attack.

世界贸易中心在1993年的一次爆炸中幸存下来。2001年9月11日之后,纽约市的天际线和精神发生了变化。那天早上,两架飞机坠入曼哈顿市中心的世界贸易中心。 起初,建筑物的顶层起火。 不久,他们就翻滚下来,用铁水和灰烬覆盖了曼哈顿下城。 共有2753人死亡。 数周以来,空气中散发出烧焦的金属和塑料的气味。 清理场地花费了八个月的时间。 多年后,世界贸易中心正在重建。 有一个新的塔,称为自由塔。 这里还有纪念馆和博物馆,以纪念在2001年袭击中丧生的人。
