Workers attached an American flag on the final piece of the World Trade Center's spire.
They watched as the final section was raised to a temporary work platform atop the structure.
People on the street also watched as the section was lifted.
The piece will be added to the spire at a later date, capping off the tower at 1,776 feet.
