Located on the World Trade Center Campus, skip the long ticket line to enjoy the observatory of this shimmering skyscraper – the tallest in the Western Hemisphere.

Step into the glass-enclosed Sky Pod to be whisked up 102 floors in 47 seconds. It's one of the fastest elevators with 23 mph. On your upward journey, floor-to-ceiling LED technology immerses you in a virtual time lapse that covers 500 years of New York's past.

Aside from the breathtaking views and all our interactive and technological features, we have 3 restaurants up at the observatory, serving from light fare to fine dine dishes.
