82. WTC1 lobby and elevators were ok early
Michael Beehler, FDNY WTC1 lobby devastated

We made it down to Vesey and on to West Street, walking into the northwest corner of the north tower. They had a mini command post set up. Lieutenant Mera came over. He said come on, we are going up to the 21 floor. There are reports of people trapped there. There was a bank of elevators there that were still in service, so we took that up to, I believe the 15 or 16th floor.

Others took elevator also. Some elevators may have been out. But not all.
