News outlets all over New York live-streamed a birds-eye-view of One World Trade Center’s Spire being raised for its final installation on May 10. However, a one-of-a-kind shot was captured from the perspective of the spire when the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey mounted a GoPro HD camera to the crane lifting it into place.

The video shows workers below the spire looking on and cheering as the final piece is raised to the top of the tower, which has been under construction since 2006.

One WTC is expected to be fully completed some time between late 2013 and early 2014.
