Unique photos of how an escalator is brought to the 101st floor of a building [Amazing Photo of the Day]

Ever look at a high rise building and wonder how the hell did someone build something so tall? More specifically, how in the world were all the things at the top put there, such as that light bulb dangling in the air sticking out from the edge of the building? Yeah, me too. Today I have a photo to share with you related to this topic.

Check out the following images. They are images of an escalator being hoisted to be put into the 101st floor of the One World Trade Center in the New York City. Be amazed:

    @Incredulous: When I say ‘stunning’ I mean the proccess of bringing the elevator to the top, not the elevator itself. That said, I agree with you — stunning is not the best of words to use for this. Ive changed it to ‘unique’ — thanks for your feedback.

    Stunning? Really? It would look the same at a lower floor! The view just wouldn’t be as good.
