A couple of weeks back, as the last two escalators, each weighing 38,000 pounds, were hoisted into the One World Trade Center. They certainly made somewhat of a majestic visual spectacle snaking their way up in the air like that. Scott Lahmers, the technical specialist for ThyssenKrupp Americas who worked on the installation of 74 elevators and 9 escalators in the building, captured some gorgeous pictures of the process.
