See New York from above
In May 2015, One World Observatory Deck opened on the 100th & 102nd Floor at One World Trade Center making it the highest observatory deck on top of the highest building in the Western Hemisphere. The tower is also known as the Freedom Tower, built on the ground where the old iconic World Trade Center stood, until that terrible day 9/11 - 2001. 

Upon entry, you'll be greeted in the Global Welcome Center, where a large video board features salutations in an array of languages, and a dynamically generated world map highlights the hometowns of visitors. You will experience a program called 'Voices,' which tells the personal stories of the men and women who built One World Trade Center. Next, you can get a close-up view of the very bedrock on which the building stands.

You then board one of five dedicated elevators to ascend to the 102nd floor in under 60 seconds. At the top, you'll experience a virtual time-lapse that recreates the development of New York City's skyline from the 1500s to present day.

Hereafter you will watch a two-minute video presentation that combines bird's eye imagery, time-lapse shots with abstract textures and patterns to present the unique pulse of New York City in three dimensions.

On the 100th floor of the Observatory, also known as the Discovery Level, you will experience expansive, 360-degree views in all directions, taking in the iconic sights and surrounding waters.
