One World Trade Center Reaches New Heights [VIDEO]
One World Trade Center is officially the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports from New York City:
When the Twin Towers were destroyed on 9/11, officials promised to rebuild. It took nearly a dozen years. (Cheers) And now, the new World Trade Center has reached its full height. With chants of USA!, construction workers put into place a long spire, making the new tower exactly 1,776 feet tall. It was a moment of celebration:
Construction workers: “This is a great day for the country.” // “We’re making history. It’s a long time coming.” // “It’s great to finish off the building.”
There’s still more construction work to be done, but the new World Trade Center is now the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
In New York, Hank Weinbloom, FOX News Radio.
