NEW YORK, N.Y. - One World Trade Center, the skyscraper that replaces the fallen twin towers in New York City, is about to receive the last pieces of its crowning spire, a 124-metre structure built in part in Canada.
Once the spire is installed, the 104-story highrise, already New York's tallest building, will be just feet from becoming the highest in the Western Hemisphere.
Officials had hoped that would happen Monday, but the weather did not co-operate and it was postponed due to high winds. The event will be rescheduled when conditions permit.
