World Trade Centre now tallest US building

New World Trade Centre in New York has claimed the record for tallest US building over Chicago's Willis Tower.

    The new World Trade Centre tower in New York is officially the tallest building in the United States.

    But the record didn't come without a fight from Chicago, whose Willis Tower has lost the title.

    Some also argue that the spire on top is nothing more than a glorified antenna.

    Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports.
