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. It served as the U.S. Customs House for 28 years.

On September 11, 2001, the building was badly damaged from the fall of the North Tower (WTC 1) of the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks. The building was demolished later that year.
