Way Beyond the Gilded Age

We can file this one under Way Beyond the Gilded Age but it's too cool not to post.  Today, May 10th, 2013, One World Trade Center finally reached her final height of 1,776 feet when the top of the spire was installed this morning.  The crew attached a camera to the last piece and the above video provided by the Port Authority allows us to ride along with it on its way into the sky.

Amazing. There is nowhere in the world I'd less rather be than on that little piece of staging at the top.
