A barge loaded with sections of spire for One World Trade Center is guided by tugboat across New York Harbor from New Jersey's Port Newark Tuesday. The nine pieces each weigh 70 tons. The spire is expected to rise into the Manhattan sky by spring. "It signifies that we're back, we're better than ever, and it shows the resilience of not just New York, but also people in general," said Steven Plate, the director of post-9/11 construction at the lower Manhattan trade center. "The spire is a candle on the cake."
