ngineer James R. Endler, whose
work included massive projects
such as the World Trade Center,
Disney's Epcot Center, and
such personal desires as the
West Point Jewish Chapel,
died March 24, 2012, at 82.
Endler learned engi-
neering at West Point and
then in the Army Corps of
Engineers. Along with the
WTC and Epcot, he also
worked on Disneyland
Paris, Renaissance Center in
Detroit and Canary Wharf in
London. After joining the real estate
firm Tishman Realty and Construction,
Endler helped oversee construction of
Madison Square Garden over the relo-
cated Penn Station in the 1970s.
After the destruction of the
Twin Towers on 9-11, Endler was
quoted as saying "they had been
built as safe as any building could be
An investigative report by New York
Times reporters on the towers a year
after their collapse reported an anec-
dote of a ceremony at the building's top
when the North Tower was
completed in 1970.
When the North Tower,
the first to go up, was topped
out on Dec. 23, 1970, Endler
made a point of showing up
at a celebration for the work-
ers held on one of the skeletal
upper floors. There was a
band, soda and sandwiches.
When the band played the
Mexican hat dance, the con-
struction workers started stomping in
unison, and Endler — standing next
to Jack Kyle, the Port Authority's chief
engineer — began to feel odd vibra-
tions in the structure. "Jack, how do we
stop that vibration?" Endler asked.
"Don't play that song anymore," Kyle
