One World Observatory

One World Observatory

Completed in 2013, the One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. It is officially considered to be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, as well as the sixth-tallest in the entire world!

The One World Observatory is located on levels 100, 101, and 102 of the 1,776 ft tall building, and trust us when we say these are views you won't get anywhere else in the world. Here are a few things you can expect during your visit:

  • SkyPod Elevator Ride
    This is perhaps the most exciting feature of the observatory, the elevator sending you 102 stories up in the air in only 47 seconds. Not only is the ride itself thrilling, but you will be viewing high definition images and videos of NYC from it's earliest days until today!
  • See Forever Theater
  • Sky Portal 
  • City Pulse 
  • ONE Cafe 

Student groups looking to learn a little more in-depth information about the city, its history, and its impact on the world overall will want to spend extra time near City Pulse chatting with a professional Tour Ambassador, as they have several interactive experiences that help reveal the city history, geography, landmarks, neighborhoods, and cultures.
