A construction worker looks out the windows of the 71st floor of One World Trade Center as a beam is lifted up by a cable in New York. The One World Trade Center, built on the Ground Zero site of the fallen World Trade Center Towers, which were brought down in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, officially surpassed the Empire State Building as the tallest building in New York. One World Trade Center will stand at 1,776 feet to the tip of its antenna when it is completed, possibly by late 2013. It will then be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and the third tallest building in the world.
