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
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:

facility is currently structurally stable."
