Blocks? What kind of blocks? I don't beleive blocks of any kind were
used in the construction of the WTC.

There have been many articles on the web on the construction
of the World Trade Centers. I suggest you do a Google search.
The topic is quite complex. It was not built of "blocks".

The PBS show Nova did an excellent analysis of the WTC collapse called
"Why the Towers Fell," which of course had detailed information about
how they were built. The program's web site is at:

It was made of the 4x2 blocks that you get in the basic building kit. I
don't think they used L-shaped corner pieces or any of the other gimmickry
that was popular in the 1970s. Gotta wonder where they got that many black
ones, though - usually you get a whole lot of reds and yellows and only a
few blacks; they must have sold them off or thrown them away or stored them
somewhere for a future project.

Also they used the little people without the flexible arms and legs (i.e.,
shoulders and hips, but not as fun as the big ones with working elbows and
knees). At least they still have interchangeable hair.
