102nd Floor Stairwell Sign

<< >>
Description (Brief)
In a high-rise building such as the World Trade Center, stairwells are the lifeline to safety in an emergency. This metal stairwell sign from the World Trade Center is painted white with black lettering that reads “Stairway C Floor 102.” The sign is almost bent in half and is very dirty. This was recovered from the debris at the Staten Island Recovery site at Fresh Kills. It is unknown which tower this sign came from, but Floor 102 was above the impact zone of both towers, and it is remarkable that it was recovered.
