Important information

  • Visit New York's most innovative and immersive observation deck, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt
  • Get wrapped up in art installations that will blow your mind, all while enjoying one of the city's best views
  • Stand on a glass ledge 1,000 feet above the city and see Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building up close

Get ready to reconsider what is possible. A new reality awaits you at SUMMIT. Across three floors and three unique experiences, you’ll be challenged, inspired, and thrilled.

Extend the horizons of your imagination through mind-bending, multi-sensory installations produced by top artists, all while enjoying one of the best views in Manhattan.

On the top floor, soak up spectacular 360 views of New York City and beyond, including close-ups views of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.

Start your journey at 1,000 feet with Air by Kenzo Digital. In this exhibit, not only will you enjoy one of New York’s most impressive views, you’ll also experience trippy visuals that give Dr. Strange a run for his money.

Mirrors will distort your perception, and new areas will let you play with the space as you bat your way through floating, reflective spheres. Finish Air by becoming part of the space itself – capture your face in 3D and watch as it transforms into a cloud and joins the mesmerizing, infinite cloudscape display on a giant screen. This one’s an Instagram dream.

The next step is one you’ll have to muster some courage to take. Levitation allows you to step out onto a glass ledge suspended 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue. Your heart will be racing, but there’s no better way to appreciate New York’s skyscrapers. After that, you’ll definitely want a cocktail in SUMMIT’s lounge and outdoor terrace Après.
