NEW YORK - An expert committee of architects declared One World Trade Center the nation’s tallest building, surpassing Chicago's Willis Tower.

The council looked at whether a design change meant the needle on top of One World Trade is part of the actual building or was the equivalent of a broadcast antenna.

Some Brooklyn residents say that Chicago’s skyscraper should still have the title of tallest building in the U.S. because of the antenna controversy.

Others say the title belongs in the Big Apple, no matter what the technicality may be.
