It's about a 10 minute, several block walk from the WTC to 60 Hud. According to the mapping services it's over half a mile away. I find the liklihood of large debris falling that far away fairly low. Both 1WTC and 2WTC were just over 1400' tall, which is approximately a quarter mile. Even if they had both fallen directly towards 60 Hudson, it might survive. There are also quite a few buildings in the way that should act as a pretty big shield. I think you probably got that from Genuity, which appears to have retracted it 20 minutes ago. See (or finger) their ticket 1223350, which states: "Although access to 60 Hudson Street is prohibited at this time, contrary to previous reports, we have confirmed that this facility is currently structurally stable." --msa
