9/11: How many buildings collapsed?

MMDE: 3

Current: 7

As if the 9/11 attack isn't controversial enough, it seems to now be the subject of a Mandela Effect.

Everyone knows the Twin Towers were destroyed on September 11, 2001, and many know that WTC 7 was lost too. Most people believe 3 buildings collapsed, and remember that's the way it was reported at the time. So they are surprised to hear that today the figure is 7, and that doesn't count buildings demolished in the weeks following due to damage received on the day, such as the Deutsche Bank Building,

Wilipedia:

The collapse of the Twin Towers destroyed the rest of the complex, and debris from the collapsing towers severely damaged or destroyed more than a dozen other adjacent and nearby structures. Other buildings destroyed include St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, Marriott World Trade Center (Marriott Hotel 3 WTC), South Plaza (4 WTC), and U.S. Customs (6 WTC).

The Verizon Building was also extensively damaged but was successfully restored later.

Other buildings

New York wasn't the only target on that fateful day - the Pentagon suffered an attack too, although there are now reported victims from that and the building didn't totally collapse.
