1 World Trade Center becomes tallest building in NYC
One World Trade Center, the unfinished skyscraper where the Twin Towers once stood, became the tallest building in New York City this afternoon. Still under construction more than a decade after the Sept. 11 attacks, the building's skeleton surpassed the Empire State Building's 1,250-foot-high observation deck, reaching 1,271 feet with the addition of a few steel columns. The Freedom Tower will eventually measure 1,776 feet, including a 408-foot-tall needle that will be attached to the roof.

It looks more effective for keeping the Midtown skyscrapers out of shot.
