An In-Spired View
Late last week the construction of the new One World Trade Center in New York City reached a climax with the emplacement of the very top end of the building, to wit, upper end segment of the spire-like antenna tower atop the now-third-tallest skyscraper in the world and tallest such structure in the western hemisphere at 1,776 feet, a number that was quite deliberately chosen as its height. Below is a time-lapse view of this final sement being installed in a ceremony atop the building. I find this view equal measures inspiring and butt-puckering.
