Guided tour for Independent.ie of the top of New York City
TAOISEACH Enda Kenny will be the only political leader to go to the highest point ever built above New York City.
Mr Kenny was granted exclusive access to the top of the Freedom Tower - the 105 storey tall building replacing the Twin Towers, destroyed on 9/11.
Here, Freedom Tower Steel Superintendent Kevin Murphy gives Independent.ie a guided tour of the "Doghouse" - the temporary structure above the top floor of the 105th floor.
The sights below include the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The platform is being used to build a communications antenna at the top of the building will be taken down when construction is complete, meaning views from this height will never be seen by the public.
