35th Anniversary World Trade Center Climb Thirty Five Years since George Willig, a 27 year old toy maker-inventor climbed the South Tower of the World Trade Center. 
Three and a half hours of heroic history were made when George’s inventiveness gripped New York… and the world. It was one of those moments in time when everything stopped. 

George was interviewed in his Hollis, Queens apartment by Tom Clifford and Bob Brown, and his candidness portrays an "Everyman" whose love of climbing had all of New York hold it's collective breath. Joining them is Mildred M. Tassone.

You can now listen to this exclusive informal interview with George, recorded a few weeks after the climb, as he candidly relives that day.
