Sentence about the September 11 attacks


New Member
Hi everybody, I need some help as i can't understand a sentence I read in a press article about the September 11 attacks. Here is it :

"(...) But family members are allowed to descend seven stories below ground to the site and touch the spot where their loved ones died."

    Hi Kevin,
    The part that is a problem for me is : "seven stories below ground to the site". I've understand that the mourners were allowed to go from a place to another in order to pay homage to their closings, but i didn't understand where and what is a "story" in this context.
