Remember the pitch for Windows on the World?
"The only way to know what happened in the restaurant at the 107th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11 2001, between 8:30 and 10:29 AM is to make it up."
Not necessarily. A little research goes a long way.
The cell phone calls made from participants in the Risk Waters Conference at Windows on the World indicate that everybody on the 107th floor was ordered down to the 106th floor, and they waited there for the help that never arrived. But the smoke from the fires on the lower floors rushed up the elevator shafts, which operated like chimneys, and within minutes the smoke was so thick on the 106th floor that visibility was reduced to ten feet. Some of the staff of the restaurant were on the phone to the Fire Command Center in the lobby, and they got the advice for everybody to wet towels and keep them over their faces. But the water pipes were broken and there was no water. In a phone call to his wife, a waiter, January Maciejweski, said he was looking for water in the flower vases.---Out of the Blue: The Story of September 11, 2001, From Jihad to Ground Zero by Richard Bernstein and the staff of The New York Times, pp. 205, 206
