Construction continues on the 1 World Trade Center in New York City.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE! Despite the fact the 2011-’12 NBA season officially begins today (with the Lakers taking on the Chicago Bulls at STAPLES Center later this afternoon), just thought I would instead focus on showing these great photos of the 1 World Trade Center (1 WTC) as progress continues to be made on it being completed by early 2013. The lights inside the Freedom Tower were given holiday colors, making this topic a bit relevant for today. As of this entry, the building’s steel has risen to the 92nd floor...making the tower 1,146 feet tall. 12 more floors need to be constructed before 1 WTC’s primary framework is finished. After that, only the antenna spire needs to be installed to bring this U.S. skyscraper to a symbolic height of 1,776 feet. Awesome. This may just be an office building we’re talking about here, but I wouldn’t mind traveling back to New York City just to see this post-9/11 symbol of recovery in person. Once it’s completed, that is. Carry on.
