EarthCam, a network of streaming live webcams around the planet, documented the construction of the One World Trade Center tower between February 2010 and September 2012 from multiple angles, by day and by night. The skyscraper is now the tallest building in New York City. Want to see what the top of the tower looks like right now? Check out the live stream here.
