During the 1980s, advertising firm, Comart, contracted with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to create promotional material for stores and restaurants on the Concourse level of the World Trade Center. Judith Pucci, donor and creator of many of these brochures and advertisements recalled, “These materials speak to the daily retail life of the World Trade Center, one of the multiple facets of the complex that made the Trade Center a source of entertainment and shopping, as well as a workplace.”
