Holy crap this place was packed today with reporters and people just gazing at this. In fact, I think I accidentally appeared on fox 5. Well, here are some pictures I took.

Some photos from the Daily Mail

View from the top of the world: One World Trade Center becomes New York's tallest skyscraper


Life at the top: Bill Baroni, deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, speaks to the media on the 71st floor of One World Trade Center


Room with a view: Workers sit on one of the top floors of the new One World Trade Center building


The view from one of the top floors of the new One World Trade Center


The magic moment: Workers lower the girder that made One World Trade Center the highest building in New York


Tallest in New York: The girder is succesfully installed at the top of One World Trade Center making it the tallest building in New York


Tricky: A crane on the top of the massive skyscraper lifts a steel beam into place on the 100th floor of the new World Trade Center building


Success: Steel workers Billy Geoghan and Jim Brady walk on the steel beam which gave One World Trade Center bragging rights over the rest of New York


Looking down on the world: View from the 71st floor of One World Trade Center


Workplace snapshot: A construction worker on the 71st floor of One World Trade Center takes a cell phone photograph


Going up: A construction worker looks out the windows of the 71st floor of One World Trade Center as a beam is lifted up by a cable in New York


Pin point: Spires, however, are considered part of the building and are always counted. It's a tradition that goes back to a time when the tallest buildings in many European
cities were cathedrals



Still growing: Workers are still adding floors to the so-called 'Freedom Tower' and the building isn't expected to reach its targeted 1,776 foot height for another year


Two construction workers on the 71st floor of One World Trade Center look at a view of the New York skyline


Number two: The Empire State Building, now New York's second tallest building, is seen from the top of One World Trade Center


Vista: This extraordinary view will be open to the public after the building is finished and made accessible to visitors


Life on top: A view of One World Trade Center from the Rockefeller Center today


Soaring: One World Trade Center overlooks Battery Park City and the Hudson


City landmark: Pedestrians cross 14th street in view of One World Trade Center


Beacon of hope: One World Trade Center


Tall order: Without a spire, the completed One World Trade Center would be smaller than Chicago's Willis Tower at 1,451 feet but bigger than the Empire State Building
at 1,250 feet (not including antennas)



Skyscraper enthusiasts: While debate over which buildings can truly claim to be the tallest, the Council on Tall Buildings is leaning toward giving One World Trade the
benefit of the doubt

It took them 6 years to surpass ESB where as ESB was build in 1 year and 2 months in 1930's.

There isn't a 6WTC in the plans. Unless the proposed performing arts center is given that moniker. Even 5WTC is very iffy at this point.

There will be a 5 WTC that will certainly be last and yes I believe the PAC will be named 6 at some point in the future once the entire main complex is complete. I don't see how they wouldn't.

The Cranes are already higher than that I believe, plus the official height of 1WTC is still 541 meters and ESB 381 meters, ESB's antenna doesn't count, it's a bit silly.

Haha, I know what you mean, I have always thought they should go by roof height, or atleast pinnacle. But luckily, they have 4 categories. I remember the first time I knew about the ESB, and I though, so it's 381 meters to the roof ? So wait, its 381 to the top of that spire ? I eventually found out it was 381 meters to the top of the part of the roof that looks like a rocket ship, and I was pretty surprised.
