You need no directions to find the twin towers of the World Trade Center: they’re visible all over town. Not (quite) the tallest buildings in the world, the figures are nonetheless impressive: 1,350 feet high with 43,600 windows. Each tower has 23 express and 72 local elevators, as well as 4 for freight. The whole centre covers an area of 16 acres. A railway station and various subway stations occupy the basement levels, along with an underground shopping centre a town itself, thronged morning and evening with tens of thousands of New Jersey commuters. Even if your time in New York is limited, try to fit in a visit to the top of the World Trade Center. The highest observation deck in the world (107th floor) is open from 9.30 a.m. till 9.30 p.m. every day in Building No. 2. From there you have a fabulous aerial view of New York, New Jersey and the ocean.
