Lets see....half a million people huh?

That comes to 500,000 divided by 220 floors (110 stories each tower).

Thats 2300 people per floor? Nope...dont think so, not even when you count the ancillary buildings, such as the 47 story Tower 7 etc.

I've seen figures of 150,000 in the WTC complex on a given day. Another figure: More than 50,000 work there, 70,000 visit.

On the other hand, if you think about 24 hour a day operations, you get three shifts of eight hours, and that would alter your figure to about 800 per floor. Also: there may have been lots of part-time workers who may or may not have been there this morning.
