WOR TV Tower
WOR TV Tower was a 760 foot (231.65 metre) tall lattice tower used for FM- and TV-broadcasting at North Bergen, New Jersey, USA. The 420 ton tower was built in 1949. At the time of its construction, it was the tenth tallest man-made structure in the world. At the beginning of 1953, the TV transmissions were moved to Empire State Building, but the tower remained. On November 8, 1956, the top of the tower was hit by a small aircraft, which knocked off the top and killed six people. Afterwards the tower was dismantled.
