SLATE HILL - Recent stunts involving people sneaking into 1 World Trade Center have raised concerns about security at the site in lower Manhattan.

Slate Hill man Andrew Rossing was one of three BASE jumpers arrested for allegedly taking a plunge from the top of 1 World Trade Center this past September. Rossing's attorney Timothy Parlatore says his client found a hole in the fence and walked through it, never encountering any security guards. Earlier this month, a teenager from New Jersey also managed to sneak to the top of the skyscraper to take pictures.

Margaret Struble, of Slate Hill, says it doesn't sound like a safe area if people are able to access the site easily. One of Rossing's neighbors says she hopes more precautions will be taken now.

The Port Authority says it has worked with the company managing the tower's security to address the recent lapses in security.
