What was the height of the old Antenna? Has it reached (or surpassed) it yet?

got down to the memorial today. i must have just missed the new spire section installed by an hour or so. i saw the top of the spire down at the base and it looked like it was testing out its airplane lights but didn't see the beacon.

They have done quite a bit of work on Sundays, thought I don't recall if they have lifted or installed any spire sections on Sundays. Last Sunday they removed some of the blue netting. I've seen them install a lot of upper cladding and some of the communication ring during past Sundays.

Hey Kanto just a favor to ask,, can you add Shanghai Tower just once to your diagram, see how much taller 1WTC over ST at the moment???

The beacon will definitely make this whole spire beautiful. I know they'll count it as an architectural element
