1 World Trade Center will rise higher than the Empire State Building today, and that's not the only way in which the downtown tower is attempting to top its predecessor. 1 WTC wants broadcasters who use the Empire State Building antenna to use 1 WTC's instead, and the gift shop at 1 WTC will be way better, says the Port Authority. And tonight, in honor of the height milestone, 1 WTC will be lit up in blue and white, a dig at the Empire State Building's decision not to light up for the anniversary of Mother Teresa's birth.
