    A committee of world building heights experts announced Tuesday that a design change that affects the 408-foot needle on the new 1,776-foot World Trade Center tower does not disqualify it from being counted as the nation's tallest skyscraper.

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.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
