Spire for World Trade Center tower arrives in NJ

By Amy Wright NJ 101.5

Eight sections of the spire that will serve as an antenna arrived at Port Newark this past week on a barge that departed Quebec on November 16th. Ten additional sections will be shipped by truck later this month.

As we see One World Trade rise into the sky it’s an inspiration for all the loved ones of the 2,753 souls who perished on that horrible day. Nearly 700 New Jerseyans were lost on 9-11.

For me and I’m sure for millions, it’s exciting to see that tower rise into the sky.

Depending on weather conditions, it will take about three months to install the spire.
