The 1WTC Spire Is On Its Way From Canada

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey appears to have settled its debts with the Canadian company that built the new World Trade Center’s new spire, as it’s reporting that the piece is now on its way to the city. A ship carrying the 408-foot tall antenna set sail from Valleyfield, Quebec November 16, and is expected to arrive in Port Newark early next week.

If you’re especially excited about the structure’s progress, you can head to WTC Spire Tracking to check out the ship’s path, “much like the way the world tracks Santa’s travels on Christmas Eve,” says authority.
