A 67-ton, 408-foot spire was bolted to the top of One World Trade Center this morning, bringing the height of the building to a symbolic 1,776 feet. As of 7:46 a.m., 1 WTC became the tallest building in the Western Hempisphere. "I am very happy, but also sad, because why did we have to rebuild this tower? It's a proud day for the city," said Philip English, a construction worker.
