Working above1,700 feet in the air...Iron workers install final sections on top of One WTC   May 2013 

Iron workers and engineers prepare the beacon that will sit on top of One WTC's spire.

From on top of One WTC you can see the East River bridges...Brooklyn and Queens.

Workers install three communications rings on top of One WTC which will bring back broadcast capabilities to lower Manhattan.
Window installers walk along beams at dizzying heights from the 102nd floor of One WTC to install curtain wall panels.

Final two pieces of One WTC spire sit next to previously installed sections.  When connected, One WTC will stand 1776 feet.

Iron workers courageously guide spire sections 17 and 18 into place.

The first large piece of the spire for One World Trade Center was lifted up to the top of the building.
