One World Observatory Reviews
Don’t bother with the upgrade offered when buying tickets - not worth it on top of an already expensive ticket. more »
I didn’t expect to have such an overwhelming great experience at One WTC. We went for the unequalled views. Put your camera on panorama, put your brain on amazed, and be ready to enjoy beautiful NYC (... more »
I went up the One World Observatory on the evening of September 11 2019. It was busy and full of people but still well managed. The security scans at the bottom were quick. The elevator ride to the top was awesome and fast. We were kept entertained by the walls having vision of New York. I went up at 6pm in time for a beautiful sunset at 7.10pm. As it was also the anniversary of September 12, a Tribute in Light was also lit. It was very beautiful and sad at the same time. The gift shop at the top also had excellent products to buy. #letsguide
Great views of the city from the highest point! After contemplating for a good while whether to go to the One World or to the Empire State Building for the top views, settled for this one and it was so well worth it.. What I loved here - - This is easy to miss given you have whole of Manhattan to view from here.. but look out for the 9/11 Memorial.. it looks amazing from top! - The Empire State Building & Chrysler - The lift ride up to the 102nd floor.. which augmented the rise of Manhattan over all the decades.. it's pretty awesome and keeps your mind off how high you're actually going in that lift! - Water views from top were stunning.. including Lady Liberty.. a speck but nevertheless - The guys who give a nice talk about New York.. pretty awesome! Overall, totally recommend.
