This shirt is so soft that it makes NYC smell better.
The One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, New York. Also known as the Freedom Tower, many people (tourists and New Yorkers) visit the building to appreciate the city of New York.
The construction was delayed, but it finally started in May 2006. It was officially opened on November 3, 2014. It took eight years before the construction was finalized. One of the reasons for the delay is the funding. By 2012, costs have exceeded $3.8 billion.
The tower (including its spire) stands at 1,776 feet. It’s the sixth-tallest building in the world. Some people think: why didn’t they aim to make it the tallest building? Well, from the beginning of its design, it was already decided that the height would be 1,776 feet.
This height was determined because it signifies the year 1776—the year that the Declaration of Independence of the U.S. was signed. Knowing this little fact makes the name One World Trade Center resonate more.
If you’re in New York, don’t forget to stop by the One World Trade Center. Ride its Sky Pod elevators and marvel at how it can rise to 1,250 feet in one minute. Plus, you’ll get an amazing view of how New York has transformed through the years on its monitors.
If you’re into drones, chill music, and great city landscapes, here’s a magnificent view of the One World Trade Center during sunset.
