One World Observatory Offers Stunning Views of NYC

one-world-observatory-taw-1

Fast becoming one New York City’s premier, must-see attractions, the One World Observatory is a wonder of design and engineering; a genuine crown jewel atop One World Trade Center.

One World Observatory opened in early May, already drawing guests from across the globe to the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere (1,776 feet.); The One World Observatory deck sits atop the 104-story skyscraper at the former site of the Twin Towers, featuring a thrilling 360-degree wall of 30-foot windows gifting us with breathtaking, panoramic views of New York City.

Delight in iconic city sites, and surrounding waters, like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building, and the Statue of Liberty, like you have never seen them before.

TicketsatWork.com is excited to offer savings up to 15% for weekday admission tickets.

One World Observatory City Pulse with Tickets at Work

Here’s a quick snapshot of some highlights at the observatory:

  • Upon entry, guests are greeted in the Welcome Center, where a large cutting-edge video board displays a personalized greeting in their native language. Guests then proceed to a pre-show program, titled Voices of the Building that incorporates first-person accounts describing the rise of One World Trade Center, and Foundations, which depicts and symbolizes the very bedrock upon which it stands.
  • Visitors then board one of five dedicated elevators, aka Sky Pods, to ascend to the very top of the building in under 60 seconds. The elevators, among the fastest in the world, feature three walls with floor-to-ceiling LED TVs, which use immersive technology to display the rise and growth of New York City that simulates the skyline’s development through the present day.
  • The See Forever Theater presents a two-minute video presentation, combining bird’s-eye imagery, time-lapse shots, and abstract textures and patterns to bring the unique rhythm and pulse of New York City to dramatic life in three dimensions.
  • The main observatory space on the 100th floor includes an interactive skyline “concierge” – City Pulse – that connects guests closer to the landmarks and neighborhoods they observe across the city. Using gesture recognition technology, the ambassador—with the simple wave of a hand—will draw up relevant facts and real-time information on a circular band of display screens in front of the windows.
  • The 100th level also features the Sky Portal, where guests are invited to step onto a 14-foot-wide circular disc in the floor for an unforgettable view (in live HD) of the city streets below. Acrophobes, take note!

The observatory also includes event spaces and restaurants ranging from quick, casual options to an expensive steakhouse. There is also the Gallery at One World featuring souvenir gift items for all ages.

There is a lot to experience at One World Observatory. It’s easy to see why this amazing attraction is drawing so many people to NYC to marvel at the architecture of the building, engage with the interactive activities, and experience the awe-inspiring views of the city.

Simply put: a visit to the One World Observatory is an outstanding must-experience for the whole family.
