NEW YORK (AP) - The last pieces of One World Trade Center's spire will be hoisted onto the roof today, weather permitting.
    
Then at a later date those pieces and a steel beacon will cap the building at 1,776 feet, becoming the highest in the Western Hemisphere.
    
The 104-floor skyscraper replaces the twin towers destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001.
