New York Metropolitan Transportation Council - Tower 1; 82nd floor. It's the New York metro MPO.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey - Tower 1; floors 3, 14, 19, 24, 28, 31.

Gibbs and Hill (transportation engineering) - Tower 2; 91st floor.

Mancini Duffy (architects) - Tower 2; floors 15, 21, 22.

Tower 1 was struck between the 89th and 95th floor; Tower 2 between 79 and 90.

Any news regarding survivors from these firms and agencies would be much appreciated.

This is not a closed thread; followup posts are welcome.

WTC architects

Good Morning America/ABC News had a piece on Mancini Duffy this morning. They all survived. A customer has offered them office space.

They had a reunion yesterday, and gave thanks for their well being, and naturally, expressed sorrow for those who haven't been so lucky.


Administrator's note - see http://www.manciniduffy.com/news/Announcements/new_location.htm :).

No news on the NYMTC or Gibbs and Hill.

I searched ABC News, and couldn't find a reference to the piece about Mancini Duffy. Your report is certainly different from the one I saw.

Administrators's note - I had the figures for M/D and the PANYNJ reversed. They are corrected now.
