One World Observatory

Ascend to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere in less than 60 seconds and take in the panoramic view from the new One World Trade Center.

Including its spire, the new One World Trade Center reaches a total height of 1,776 feet – a deliberate reference to the year that the United States Declaration of Independence was signed.

The top three floors are dedicated to the Observatory, which opened for visitors in 2015. The floor to ceiling windows on the 100th floor provide a 360-degree view of the New York City skyline.

There are also three dining options ranging from casual to upscale, including a lounge that’s perfect for grabbing a cocktail and watching the sunset over the Hudson.
