Construction crews at the site where the World Trade Center once stood put the last two sections of a spire on top of the building known as One World Trade Center on Thursday, May 2nd.
This makes the structure the tallest building in the western hemisphere, and it comes about 11.5 years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
The spire measures 408 feet and weighs almost 6 tons. The spire will be used for television broadcasting.
One World Trade Center stands a symbolic 1,776-feet-tall, a tribute to the year the United States declared its independence.
The spire was placed upon the Freedom Tower on the two-year anniversary of the day Navy Seals killed terror mastermind Osama bin Laden at his hideaway in Pakistan.
