One World Trade Center or short 1WTC topped out early in the morning, Friday, May 10th, 2013 in Lower Manhattan, New York.


One of the most famous skyscrapers in the world reached its full height of 451m (1,776ft) when ironworkers installed last two sections of controversial spire. One WTC became the tallest building in New York City, tallest building in the United States putting Willis Tower in Chicago off the throne, and tallest building in Western Hemisphere.


At the moment it's even third tallest building in the world. Topping out was widely followed across the world and some amazing photos were captured this morning. Take a look and come back later as we will ad more during the day. Enjoy.
