Six World Trade Center was an eight-story building in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It was part of the original World Trade Center complex of buildings. It was opened in 1973. For a short time, it served as the U.S. Customs House.

On September 11, 2001, the building was badly damaged from the fall of the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center. The building was demolished later that year.[1]
