On Friday, May 10th,
the spire topped
One World Trade Center
bringing this new iconic structure
to a total height of 1,776 feet!This height, 1,776 feet, is the year USA became a country (Why did my kids look at me like I made that up? Don't they know this?). This makes One World Trade the tallest building in the western hemisphere, and the third-tallest in the world. The tallest building, Burj Khalifa, is located in Dubai, UAE and is an amazing 2,717 feet tall! The second tallest building, Makkah Royal Clock Tower, is located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia and is an astonishing 1, 971 feet tall!
|One World Trade,|
Awaiting her spire
The spire is 408 feet tall and weighs 758 tons.
|Spire hoisted up for placement|
|Talk about pressure! |
Everyone is watching,
and all of One World Trade is glass!
|Plus, this guy is counting on you!|
|Just keep taking deep breaths!|
|Makes you want to chant, "Go, go, go, go!|
Can you imagine, iron workers crying?
These guys walk fearlessly on small I-beams a thousand feet in the air.
And, thank you!
I do believe it's a symbol of resiliency, and hope in freedom for all ...
THE biggest middle finger ...
