Owner description: There are a million things to experience in New York City, but there’s only one way to see them all at once. You can start by hopping a Sky Pod to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. There, 102 stories up, find yourself face-to-face with New York’s iconic skyline. Maybe you’ve seen views of the city before, but never quite like this. Walk the three sprawling levels of the Observatory and discover surprises along the way. Drop into the café and grab a bite to eat. Step onto the Sky Portal and stroll high above the crowded streets. Take an interactive guided tour of the city with the help of our Skyline Concierges, available to answer any questions you might have about New York’s long and storied history. And don’t leave without stopping by the One Mix bar for a glass of celebratory prosecco and one last look toward the horizon. See for yourself why One World Observatory is truly An Experience Above.

A totally worth it experience. There is no better way to view NYC like this . I would just go during a sunset time - It looks more beautiful in those sky colors and pictures come out good too.

From deciding to go to the tower at 7:15 PM at a restaurant on the upper east side, to standing in the observation deck at 8:00 that evening, walking right in - no lines - watching the sunset then viewing Manhattan and Jersey City night lights - we had a truly enjoyable evening. This was a Monday, so weekend crowds were avoided. As a teen I stood in a very similar location in one of the Twin Towers, It's very easy to become emotional. What a mixture of joy and sorrow.

Queued up to get into building , then queued up to buy tickets and then queued up for security and 80 dollars for me and my teenage daughter was v pricey and then when you go up there trying to flog you a ipad tour guide for 15 dollars and we cudnt get a decent pic with the reflection of the glass , we thought the Empire State Building was much better

I am not gonna tell you much as from getting into the lift your adventure starts and when you think its over, dream on.
The top (102 floors) is fantastic giving you great round views well worth every penny and more.
You have to see this for yourself from start to coming down in the lift is spectacular.. wow

This is one of those times when you need to go somewhere to help you deal with emotions. The horrors witnessed on this site still live on in photos and videos. The people who live and work I New York will never forget and rightly so... we were proud to go and pay our respects at Ground Zero before experiencing the amazing turbo lift ride to the top of the world .. once there you really can see forever. Incredible . Unforgettable.
