The tower is also the fifth tallest in the world. It is built on the site of the original Six World Trade Center tower that was damaged during the September 11, 2001 attacks. The height of the tower was deliberately kept at 1,776 feet to match the year the United States Declaration of Independence was signed.

    I’m so wondering that how come the photo was shoot from that height. Did the photographer stand aside on the crane, if there was? Or did he shoot from a helicopter which was staying right above the tower? And if he’s stand on the tower, how did he go up to the top? Used a lifter? It’s really awesome any way!
