1 World Trade Center

5 March 2020

New York is a city of fulfilled dreams, with the largest number of inhabitants in the United States. It is also the center of one of the most populated agglomerations in the world. No wonder that the cost of living in NYC is extremely high, the streets are filled with traffic jams and the sidewalks are crowds of passers-by.

The New York skyline is decorated with 5,818 skyscrapers, including 92 buildings at least 183 meters high. The highest of them is the 1 World Trade Center (formerly known as the Freedom Tower), which was put into use in 2014. The building was built on the site of WTC office buildings destroyed in the 9/11 attack.

The tallest building from the World Trade Center complex is located in Lower Manhattan. The height of 1 World Trade Center is 541 meters, which symbolically mark the date of the United States Declaration of Independence. The tower has 105 floors and as much as 240,000 square meters of office space.

One World Observer

Being in New York is worth seeing the panorama of the city from above, of course, if your not afriad of the height. 1 World Trade Center offers a stunning 360-degree view of the city from 102 flors.

When going to One World Observers, it’s a good idea to check the weather forecast so that nothing disturbs this stunning view that you can admire through the large windows.


Ticket prices range between 35 and 65 dollars. However, it is worth remembering that in the United States sales tax is only added to the invoice and its value in New York is 8.875%.

The cheapest ticket is guaranteed only by entering the observatory and the most expensive ticket for 65 $ offers an additional priority entry to the elevator, priority exit, tablet with a digital city guide, flexible arrival on a selected day, as well as 15 $ for use for drinks or souvenirs.

SkyPod elevator

Going up to the top of the skyscraper provides an amazing experience, especially when you use the SkyPod elevators. SkyPod lifts climb 102 floors in just 47 seconds. This amazing ride presents the 500 year history of New York, which is displayed on large, high-resolution monitors that look like windows.

The 47-second ride shows a panorama of the city that has changed over the centuries. This amazing “time travel” is a great representation of New York’s transformation.


After you reach the top with the elevator, a short audiovisual presentation of the Forever Theater is presented. The auditorium is located in a dark room with no windows to better watch the presentation about New York.

When it finished, the screens, went up to show a stunning panorama of the city. At that moment, everyone stopped their breath and they could only hear “wow” in the room, that was all we could do. The architects made sure that the first impression was remembered for a long time.

It is worth going to One World Observers at sunset and staying until dark. During sunset, the panorama of the city is breathtaking, buildings illuminate in orange, and at night the city is lit by millions of lights.

See for yourself …
