One World Trade Center the Tallest Building In New York

The news that construction is beginning on the hundredth floor of a building that will eventually rise to 104 would not ordinarily be much of a story. But on Monday, the skyscraper that has been rising from the site of the September 11 attacks will reach a small but hugely symbolic milestone as that new floor edges it past the Empire State building to become the tallest structure in New York. More than a decade after the attacks, and eight years since work began on the project, One World Trade Center reached 1,271ft on Monday. That may be just 21 feet taller than its illustrious ancestor in midtown (minus the antenna), but it means that once again a tower in lower Manhattan will crown the New York skyline. The achievement was commemorated with a ceremony on Monday afternoon.
