One World Observatory

One World Observatory is the all-new attraction crowning One World Trade Center, the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building. Riding the Sky Pod elevator, you’ll experience an immersive, floor-to-ceiling time-lapse story of NYC’s 500-year evolution in less than 60 seconds.

After the inspiring audio visual show in the SEE FOREVER THEATER™, you’ll progress to the 360-degree main observation area on the 100th floor where on a clear day you can see for 50 miles beyond NY’s iconic landmarks, bridges and waterways.

Then step on the SKY PORTAL, a 14ft reinforced glass disk and see what’s happening on the streets literally beneath your feet. One floor higher there’s a cafe, bar and fine dining restaurant where you can enjoy a drink or a meal while looking down at a tiny Statue of Liberty.
