NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Much of the tristate region was under a dense fog advisory on Thursday.

Visibility was greatly reduced in New York City and particularly in lower Manhattan.

FOX 5 morning program Good Day NY aired video of a fog-engulfed 1 World Trade Center.

Only the top of the building and its 408-foot needle could be seen.

Last month, a committee in Chicago of world building heights experts announced that the 1,776-foot building was in fact the tallest skyscraper in North America.

A change to the spire's design put into question whether it could be counted in the total height of the building.

The building was constructed at the northwest corner of the site where the twin towers were destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. 

Its height is a nod to the nation's birth in 1776.
