Big News From Downtown - 1 WTC Now NYC's Tallest Building Today
I just happened to take a bunch of pictures of the new tower downtown on Friday morning, during and after my visit to watch the shuttle flyby. I had no idea that we were very close to a signigicant day in the construction of 1 World Trade Center but it just so happens that yesterday afternoon, the building officially claimed the title of tallest building in Manhattan.
Article here, and congratulations to the construction crew - must've been a proud moment when they set that beam in place.
