Highlights
  • Gaze upon New York from its proudest vantage point, the Freedom Tower, with views stretching over 50 miles into the distance

Description

Looking for the best views in town? We can do one better – how about the best views in the Western Hemisphere? The newly completed One World Trade Center stands proud as the 6th tallest building in the world, and now you can blast straight to the top and enjoy breathtaking views of New York City and beyond.

Designed by master architect David Childs (of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai), the OWTC is a spectacular glass and steel monolith, reaching 1.776 feet into the sky.

If you think that level of detail is impressive, wait till you get inside! You'll be greeted with a slick exhibit detailing the tower's development, before being whisked into a custom LED screen-lined elevator. As you glide upwards, you'll be treated to a time-lapse history of New York – it's like you're flying through time!

Of course, the real highlight is waiting at the top. The three-story observatory is absolutely stunning, offering unprecedented panoramic views of the world's greatest city. Your jaw might hit the ground – except that the ground will be a distant memory!

Once your pulse has settled, check out the Sky Walk, which broadcasts real-time video onto the walls and floor, allowing you to get a real birds-eye view of the city below. You may never want to come back down to Earth!

One World Explorer

Take your sky-high experience to a whole new level with the One World Explorer Augmented Reality app. Grab one of the supplied iPads and take a virtual helicopter tour of the NYC skyline, or scan the horizon and see it brought to life with dynamic multimedia content. This AR adventure is a real 21st-century sightseeing experience!

Insider tip

If the One World Trade Center's height sounds familiar, it is! The building was carefully designed to be exactly 1.776 feet tall – paying tribute to the year the Declaration of Independence was signed!

We had out of town family visiting us & they weren't disappointed with the Observation at the Freedom tower. They were very impressed by the whole experience.

Most reviews have covered much but I will add that once you make it through the presentations you can hang out as long as you want (until closing). I had to get in and out to make a concert but wish I could have had a drink and stayed longer. Soon NYC will have the Central Park/Norstrom Tower which could have a higher observatory but not by much. It definitely won't have as much historical significance. The Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia is set to become the new highest building in the world by 2020. It will span 3,280 feet into the sky!

It was beautiful to see the view from up there. There is also room for more entertainment once up there. Yes, a 360 degree view of the city is awesome but in todays times, I'm sure the experience can be enhanced.
