NEW YORK (AP) - Workers using two giant cranes on the 104th floor roof of 1 World Trade have installed the first piece of the spire that will make it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
The piece was brought to the building last month. Dozens of ironworkers were on hand Tuesday as the massive, round piece of iron slowly descended into its socket.
