Full description
There are a million things to experience in New York City, but only one way to truly see them all. Start by skipping just the ticket line or opt to also skip the elevator line. Ascend via SkyPod to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere in less than 47 seconds. With speed topping 28 mph, these are the fastest elevators in the Western Hemisphere. While ascending, SkyPod provides a virtual time-lapse visual experience showing how the view of New York City has changed from the 1500s to today. 

Once up at the Observatory, take in the iconic sights, surrounding waters, and panoramas of the Manhattan skyline and beyond. Then look toward the horizon and feel the city’s invincible spirit while taking in the stunning views. 

Immerse yourself in the bustling crossroads of the world at the See Forever Theater. Engage with City Pulse and One World Observatory's global ambassadors as they share stories of this amazing city. Step onto the expansive Sky Portal and take a walk high above the streets of New York. Dine or drink at the Café, One Mix Bar, or One Dine Restaurant.
