(Please consult Google maps if you’re unfamiliar with Manhattan). Now Trump is claiming that on September 11 he watched people jumping from the burning towers from his apartment. This would not be a fantastical claim, but his apartment is on the east side, between 56th and 57th, four miles or more from the Trade Center. I know for a fact you cannot see downtown from there, even from a 68-story high-rise. For a time after 9/11 I was working in an office tower on Madison between 48th and 49th, and you can’t see downtown from there.
On 9/11 I could see the towers clearly from West 17th between 7th and 8th avenues, but even from there I couldn’t make out bodies.
