Photo of the Day - Freedom Tower - One Step Closer

The spire on top of the Freedom Tower, in lower Manhattan, looks to be nearing completion. This will make the Freedom Tower the tallest structure in the Western Hemisphere. The photo below was taken earlier today from New Jersey by my son John.  You can see that the upper floors still need their outer 'skin' and that the spire is getting taller. In just over 11 years after 9-11 we have a wonderful symbol of American courage and determination.

The name of the building has been changed from Freedom Tower to the official designation:

ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER

I go to that neighborhood for work two or three times a month and it is truly an elegant building.
