Comet Hale-Bopp wasn't discovered until 1995, and was only visible to the naked eye in 1997. Is this a different comet?

Looks like a typo. You can see the JP Morgan/ Deutsche building to the far left which wasn't built until 1989.

Tenant Amenities?

Does anyone know if the Twin Towers of the WTC offered a gym/Fitness facility to the tenants? If so, where were these located?
Or of any other special tenant amenities offered at the Twin Towers?

I know of the gym on top of 3 World Trade Center but I would imagine that was for the Marriott WTC guests.

Thanks!

Yes, they did. The gyms in the towers are shown in this YouTube video at 1:30: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF8wGG8VAvA

the famous all for the best sequence of the hippy era musical godspell, when the wtc was still under construction --

presumably it was filmed in summer 1972 and the movie was released march 21, 1973:

^ actually that happened feb 1993 and the report is aug 1997, so four and a half years later.

i just thought the image with the target on it was pretty creepy.

there are so many odd images of the wtc in hindsight, it seems like they never cease to turn up.
