The new World Trade centre is currently six feet short of being the tallest building in New York City. But on Monday, the steel structure will surpass the Empire State Building to become the tallest building in Manhattan, according to Port Authority of New York and New Jersey officials (via @BreakingNews). 

After several construction snags (see here and here) and money issues, this is exciting news.
