See the crown of 1WTC's spire ascend in ten seconds! (video)

Watch a time-lapse video of the crown of One World Trade Center's spire making its journey to the top of New York.

Yesterday we posted a link to a live EarthCam feed of One World Trade Center so you could watch as the final pieces of the spire were hoisted into place. Fascinating, yes, but a bit slow for our liking.

Well, good news, ye of short attention spans. EarthCam has released this time-lapse video, condensing the key 12-minute crane operation into a mere ten seconds. Watch it, then get back to your busy, busy day. Or watch more footage below.
