1 World Trade Center Will Reclaim the Sky in Lower Manhattan @ NYTimes.com.

If the winds are forgiving enough over Lower Manhattan — up where workers can see the whole outline of the island’s tip — a steel column will be hoisted into place Monday afternoon atop the exoskeleton of 1 World Trade Center and New York will have a new tallest building.

The tower has been growing at the rate of a new floor every week. More important, downtown will have reclaimed its pole star.

Poking into the sky, the first column of the 100th floor of 1 World Trade Center will bring the tower to a height of 1,271 feet, making it 21 feet higher than the Empire State Building.

Pictured above, we can now see 1 World Trade Center outside the Adafruit factory window too!
