Fearless Construction Workers at One World Trade Center Dangle Over 1,000 Feet Above New York City Courtesy of: The Daily Mail.com Over 1,000 feet above the streets of New York City, workers dangle precariously from a crane extending from the 93rd floor of One World Trade Center. With nothing more than safety harnesses protecting them from a deadly fall, the brave workers operate at vertigo-inducing heights as the building approaches its topping out height of 1368 feet. Their awesome view extends across Manhattan Island, with the Empire State Building visible in the distance, which One World Trade Center replaced as the tallest skyscraper in New York City in April of this year. A $3.8 billion replacement for the original World Trade Center's Twin Towers, which were destroyed in the September 11th terrorist attacks of 2001, One World Trade Center's steel skeleton extends above floor 104 and concrete is being added above the 93rd. It was estimated that this month construction of the main structure would reach its expected 1,368 feet, leaving only the 408-foot-tall telecommunications spire to be installed, beginning this summer. The daredevil workers are part of multiple teams working to install the concrete casing around the steel rivets as the building rises to its final height of 1,776 feet. Formerly called the Freedom Tower and located at the northwest corner of the original WTC site, the skyscraper is being constructed according to a revised design that was finalized in June 2005. Its 408-feet-tall mast has been designed to match and evoke the Statue of Liberty's torch and the tower will taper into eight tall isosceles triangles, forming a perfect octagon at its center. The building will boast an observation deck 1,362 feet above ground on the 105th floor and there will be a square glass parapet at 1,368 feet, the heights of the original Twin Towers. According to the Port Authority schedule, the tower is expected to open in late 2013, while some interior outfitting continues into 2014. •••••
