This milestone is even more important because it is 2 days before the first anniversary of the killing of bin Laden. This is incredible progress and I hope it continues.

New Batman trailer shows One World Trade Center in the opening scene.Also,I think Nolan may have played around with Manhattan and rearranged it;it seems to be inversed in one scene.

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

Wow, from this angle it looks like 1WTC is a straight line from the ESB.

High guys! 1 WTC stands tallest in NY1 WTC tops Empire







By CHUCK BENNETT and REBECCA ROSENBERG
May 1, 2012

Quote:


Once complete, the 104-story “Freedom Tower” will hit 1,776 feet — making it the tallest building in the United States and third tallest in the world. The 104 floors will reach 1,368 feet — the same height as the north tower of the original World Trade Center — but a 408-foot, cable-secured spire with an antenna will be added to make it a symbolic 1,776 feet, representing the year the nation was founded.

The Council on Tall Buildingsan international industry group, says the mast will count toward the building’s height because it isn’t a stand-alone antenna. “This is something we have discussed with the architect,” said council spokesman Nathaniel Hollister. “As we understand it, the needle is an architectural spire which happens to enclose an antenna. We could thus count it as part of the architectural height.

Mayor Bloomberg lauded the milestone. “The New York City skyline is, once again, stretching to new heights,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “Today our city has a new tallest building and a new sense of how bright our future is.”


Very proud of these guys, and all of the construction workers accross the city that help put the skyline in place.

Does anyone know what intersection that is at? I will be staying at a hotel in the Chelsea district when I come visit next month, and I will be within walking distance of the 14th/8th A/C/E station. I have stayed at this hotel before, so I'm familiar with the area but don't recognize this. I'd love to capture 1 WTC at this intersection next month.
