The World Trade Center under construction, early 1970s
The New York Telephone Company Building (a.k.a. the Barclay-Vesey Building; now the Verizon Building) on 140 West Street in Lower Manhattan is in the background. If Stanley J Donaldson, Sr. did not regularly report to work there (I suspect he did), he was certainly intimately familiar with its inner workings as a traffic engineer.
Wiki: "The building is adjacent to the World Trade Center site and 7 World Trade Center, and it experienced major damage in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Its thick masonry exterior and use of masonry to protect steel columns and structural elements helped the building withstand the attacks. Restoration of the building after the attacks took three years, at a cost of $1.4 billion."
