"See Forever" from High Atop One World Observatory
One World Trade Center
285 Fulton Street
Soaring 1,776 symbolic feet over New York City, the tallest building in the western hemisphere welcomes visitors to behold the world from high atop its heights. As if it's not enough that the staggering view from One World Observatory is easily the best in NYC, there's even more to see than panoramic vistas for 50 miles in every direction.
Climb Nearly a Quarter-Mile in the Sky
In just 47 seconds, guests are whizzed to the 102nd floor in alarmingly smooth Sky Pod Elevators that are currently the fastest in the world. Along the way, a time-lapse video of New York history unfolds across three floor-to-ceiling LED screens until the doors open 1,250 feet over the city.
"The Best New Attraction in the World"
While the jaw-dropping 360-degree view from the Discovery Level is the main draw, a bevy of other features serve to sweeten the experience as well, including:
The Global Welcome Center - Visitors are welcomed to One World Observatory by a map visually depicting their global breadth of nationalities.
Voices - This moving hall of videos tells the story of the people who built One World Trade Center in the wake of the attacks on September 11th, 2001.
Sky Portal - Equally breathtaking and nerve-rattling, you'll feel like you're walking over the city on a glass floor as you step across the live video captured from a camera on the building's towering spire.
One World Explorer - Rent a special custom iPad to scan the skyline and identify over 40 famous city sights.
