Overview

There are a million things to experience in New York City, but there’s only one way to see them all at once. You can start by hopping a Sky Pod to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. There, 102 stories up, find yourself face-to-face with New York’s iconic skyline. Maybe you’ve seen views of the city before, but never quite like this. Walk the three sprawling levels of the Observatory and discover surprises along the way. Drop into the café and grab a bite to eat. Step onto the Sky Portal and stroll high above the crowded streets. Take an interactive guided tour of the city with the help of our Skyline Concierges, available to answer any questions you might have about New York’s long and storied history. And don’t leave without stopping by the One Mix bar for a glass of celebratory prosecco and one last look toward the horizon. See for yourself why One World Observatory is truly An Experience Above.

Go early, 9 or 10 am. So you don't have to wait in line. The best views of New York. We rented the iPads so we could identify buildings. Definitely worth the money.

The entry fee is $38/person, but the views from the top are amazing. As it is expensive it is a one time visit, but definitely something everyone should experience once.

No nasty queues - or were we just lucky? Still seems like a lot of money to go up in an elevator - but of course the views are stunning. Different from Empire State views purely given the geography so, I guess, do both!

I am not sure what I was expecting, this is my first visit of the new tower. It was a hazy day so the views weren’t great. The best part was the elevator ride.

We knew we had to do this, just because it's the newest, tallest tower in the USA. I scheduled us to go up around sunset, thinking we would be able to see both daylight and nightime effects. But the whole experience is mismanaged. From the...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
