NEW YORK (AP) - An official who supervised the development of New York City's original World Trade Center has died at age 90.
Guy Tozzoli died Saturday in Myrtle Beach, S.C. His death was announced by the World Trade Centers Association.
Tozzoli was director of World Trade Center Development for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey during the construction of the twin towers.
He was credited with bringing Japanese architect Minoru Yamasaki to the project. He also fought for the famous Windows on the World restaurant to be included in the north tower.
Current Port Authority Executive Director Patrick Foye says Tozzoli also helped build the first container port in New Jersey in the 1950s. He called Tozzoli a groundbreaking pioneer.
Tozzoli joined the Port Authority in 1946.
