About the tower:
The One World Observatory is at the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, located on the 100th - 102nd floors of the One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, New York City. This location offers views of the most iconic sights of New York City including both the water and the skyline. Guests can explore the various levels of the observatory filled with interactive and inspirational displays. Experience the incredible elevator ride to the top of the fourth tallest building in the world.
The 104-story super structure shares a numeric name with the northern Twin Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center.

Reviews One World Observatory
“Penso sia l'osservatorio più suggestivo.... spettacolare davvero un'esperienza da non perdere!!!!”
“Our guide was really friendly, respectful and shared his personal experiences and stories of 911 with us. We found it very informative and gained a much better insight into the events of that day which we would not have discovered on our own.”
