The Port Authority of New York

  • Comment
vital statistics

The Port Authority of New York, owner of the World Trade Center's twin towers, is likely to receive an insurance payout of $1.5bn, well below the $5bn-plus value put on them before collapse and only just more than the $1.3bn they cost in the early 1970s. The insurer will only pay out for one tower because the authority believed the loss of both simultaneously was too farfetched to insure against.

Estimates of the total cost of the attack are about $30bn
