3, 4, 5 World Trade Center
The September 11th Attack
These buildings were all severely damaged by the collapses
of the Twin Towers.
Building 3, the 22-story New York Marriott Hotel,
was partially crushed, first by the collapse of the South Tower,
then by the collapse of the North Tower.
Serious fires raged through WTC 5 for hours.
Despite the massive structural damage shown by the holes,
and fires far more severe than those in WTC 1, 2, and 7,
WTC 5 did not collapse.
WTC 3, 4 and 5 were demolished as part of the clean-up of Ground Zero.
