One World Trade Center

One World Trade Center showing skyline, a city and a sunset
Enjoy breathtaking views of the city from the observation platform of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, near to where the Twin Towers once stood.

Standing well above its skyscraping neighbors, One World Trade Center is a building that is easily identifiable from New Jersey and from most parts of the boroughs surrounding Manhattan. The reflective sheen of the structure’s glass is easy to mistake for metal, and its isosceles triangular façades give it the appearance of having a twisting motion toward the sky.

Few symbols of perseverance in New York City are more potent than this one. Near the skyscraper is also the site of the original World Trade Center Twin Towers, which were destroyed in a terrorist attack in 2001. The national tragedy led to the design of a new and even more impressive structure. The building opened in November 2014 and stands as a moving tribute to its predecessor as well as a marvel of its own.

Today many Americans are proud to say that One World Trade Center is one of the tallest buildings in the world. Take an elevator ride up to the main observation platform on the 100th floor. Enjoy 360-degree views of the city and beyond from 1,250 feet (381 meters) above street level. Then go down one floor to dine in the restaurant or café. Visit the building’s website for the platform’s opening hours and ticket prices.

Immediately next to One World Trade Center is the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, located on the site of the former Twin Towers. Spend time perusing the poignant exhibitions that line the museum’s walls. To ensure you get to see it at your preferred time, reserve tickets a few weeks in advance.

Near One World Trade Center are a number of restaurants and other sites. In the Financial District, get a picture with the famous Charging Bull statue. Take a walk in the Hudson River Park and see one of the most beautiful ground-level views in the city. Buy a gourmet coffee in TriBeCa, the neighborhood just north of One World Trade Center. There are several trains nearby, so you can continue on to anywhere in the city you please.
