(AP) Workers finishing New York's tallest building at the World Trade Center are leaving their personal marks on the concrete and steel: graffiti.


The scribbles appear on beams, walls and stairwells of the skyscraper that's rising to replace the terror-wrecked towers.


They range from tributes to 9/11 victims to off-color sketches and poetry.


The words Change is from within are scrawled on an iron beam in the 104-story high rise that soars above the trade center site.


One of the last beams for One World Trade Center hoisted up last year has a special handwritten message: We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger! It's signed Barack Obama.


Ironworker Kevin Murphy says the graffiti is a way for workers to get their feelings out following 9/11.
