Okay, so maybe we’re a little biased… but we reckon that the view of NYC from above is one of the most beautiful cityscapes you’ll ever see. Majestic bridges crossing the Hudson River, the gorgeous Empire State Building, and of course, the Statue of Liberty—basically, it ruins most other city views for life. New York City is packed with places to survey the city from up high… but there’s none that come close to what you’ll experience at the One World Observatory.
Located on the 100th, 101st and 102nd floors of the One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, the One World Observatory offers more than just views. Sure, it is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, but the folks who developed the observatory in 2015 didn’t rely on views alone to entice locals and visitors. From the ground floor to the ascent and back down again, your visit is filled with surprises, cutting-edge technology and fabulous entertainment. We’re not going to give everything away, but we will whet your appetite with these five reasons why One World Observatory needs to be on your summer must-do list.
