The spire of the towering 1 World Trade Center was lit up for the first time on Friday evening, Gizmodo reports.
The spire makes the 1 WTC the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The Port Authority of NYC said that the top of the building is visible for up to 50 miles.
….“It’s absolutely amazing, it’s so awesome. This definitely beats out the Empire State Building with the ability to change colors,” said Jeff Blaisdell, 29, who could see the tower’s 300 red, white, and blue LED modules from his Fulton Street apartment.”
