In honor of One World Trade Center becoming the tallest building in , EarthCam has released an exciting time-lapse movie showcasing the construction progress from 2004-2012. In just a couple minutes, you can witness years of construction. Not only is the process a moving one on an emotional level, but also sheds hope on a site that holds such strong meaning in the U.S. for a time in history that will never be forgotten.

    Seriously, lets save the fireworks for when the building is finished. Or better yet when the master plan is fully realized. Celebrating WC1 becoming the tallest building in NYC when it isn’t finish is equivalent to George W. Bush landing on a aircraft carrier and declaring victory in Iraq. This is a very premature celebration.
