At the entrance, this middle aged black lady who scanned our tickets was extremely rude and demeaning. She acted very disrespectful towards me and my friends. This experience made me a little hesitant to come back to One World Observatory.

A very quick elevator ride takes you up to the observatory where an amazing view of New York City awaits. If you're visiting the 9/11 memorial, do the One World Observatory as well.
