View-1 WTC-World Trade Center-Top-NYC-2The elevator’s see-through floor looks like the metal grate on the right of the photo

Untapped Cities reader Drew Thompson¬†shared with us his photographs from the 102nd floor of 1 WTC construction and told us this crazy detail about the exterior hoist elevator: “It’s just a see through floor on the hoist made of metal and plywood…” He also has a short Instagram video he took from the top of the hoist elevator coming down. We asked him if he took any images of the floor and he said “NO WAY! There was no way in hell I was looking down.”
