A Delta Pilot Took This Gorgeous Photo Of NYC's New World Trade Center Tower May 2013, the spire was installed on top of Manhattan's One World Trade Center, bringing the new tower to its full height of 1,776 feet. That was just tall enough to peek above the clouds for this photo, taken by Delta Airlines Captain Jerry Walsh. The Port Authority of NY & NJ posted the shot to Facebook June 12, 2013.

Officials says that the complex is both on track and on budget. Two of the proposed four buildings have already been completed. One World Trade Center is scheduled to officially open some time this fall.
