  • Visited NYC for the first time this month so did the "touristy" things we could fit in. The elevator ride is interesting with its time lapse video and the arrival on the 102nd floor ushers the group i...  read more »
  • The one world trade center is the nicest building for my all over New York. Not climbed to the Observatory by that we seemed too expensive, but you should see it by outside

  • Was a little apprehensive about paying $37 for a ticket but so glad I did. It was amazing. The elevator ride to the top was very cool. It was busy but the lines moved fast and it didn't affect our vie...  read more »
  • Great views out to Liberty and Ellis Islands. The lift takes about 20 seconds to the top floor it is silent and fast so felt very safe. The food and drink at the top was very expensive
  • Unfortunately this place has replaced the WTC but the buildings is very awesome. The Skyview will leave you speachless and breathless! Pay attention at the introducing video when you walk in at 102nd floor.
  • Beautiful 360° views from the observatory which is located on the 100th floor. Once you go in the building you go up on elevators that have screens inside that will basically simulate the elevator being made of glass and being able to see around you. Once you are upstairs on the 102nd floor you go threw a small show and then go to the 100th floor where you can get the views. If you are ever in town this is one place you have to go see. You literally will be on top of the world.
  • The views are spectacular. When I went the price was a firm 30 dollars and totally worth being atop this amazing building. The staff does a crazy presentation when you get to the top that then leads to the doors opening and the amazing view coming into life. You are then free to walk around a semi crowded observatory. The elevator is cool showing the history of new York as you go up.
  • The view from this place is awesome. You get almost 360 degree view of Manhattan. Tickets are little bit costly but worth the view. You can get good discounts on master card on weekdays. Try to reach around evening so that you can get both evening and night view.
