You are correct in the fact that there is a possibility we were at 1,313 and these are just ~40 feet, making it ~1,353 total. But, these beams could easily be ~55 feet, making it ~1,368 feet / topped out. These beams don't decrease in height just because we are a floor higher. They are definitely ~40 feet or more, no less, so if we were at 1,334 feet, we are indeed topped out.

Here it is again!

We have plenty of forumers here who have inside info and wouldn't be surprised of a few with the blueprints.When the tower tops-out,I'm sure we will be notified by the media and especially by the users in here who have the information.I think what we should do is to chill and relax and watch its last pieces of skeletal steel rise.No need to get ahead of ourselves.

Definatly not 55 foot columns. Base lobby columns are 60 feet and you see how massive they are. They are 40 feet.

Took these mobile-cam shots today from the Fulton Ferry State Park. I really wish I had my actual camera with me.

Alright, I'll give in. But certainly I cannot be disappointed with 40 foot columns going up. We are so close!

And thanks for the new photos IU. Great shots.

I wish there were more photos from that special angle which makes it appear as if 1WTC and Beekman are right next to each other.

Great angle. I like the contrast between old and modern.

The recent columns that were put up have splices so there is still more height to go, we aren't at 1,368' just yet so we're almost there. We are over 1,350'.

This confusion kills me Now do you folks mean 1350 - 1353 feet with the wrong height (1368) or with the true height (1374)?

Well from the North Entrance you add the extra feet. The 1,368' figure comes from elevation 311' 2" and the North Entrance is at Elevation 305' 6". So you would add 5' 8" to 1,368' and you get almost 1,374'. So the Tower is actually closer to 1,360' right now when measured from the North Entrance. When I said it was about 1,350' I was talking about the Tower being measure from elevation 311' 2". Hope this clears up the confusion.
