Watch: U.S. Flag-Covered Spire Raised Atop 1 World Trade Center

After weather ruined Monday's attempt, the Port Authority has raised the final piece of 1 World Trade Center's spire into place. The 408-foot spire will make the building 1,776 feet, how's that for symbolism, America?

Above, NBC New York has live video of the spire-ing.
