The World Trade Center was built to draw attention to New York City and to stand as a symbol of that city's place in the global community. It became one of the most recognized structures in the world--a symbol not only of New York, but also of American culture and prestige. Tragically, the World Trade Center's success as a symbol contributed to its downfall when terrorists targeted it for destruction on September 11, 2001.
"They are a good starting point to learn about each structure, and can be used for history, geography, and science lessons. Recommended."
