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 the ticket line and ascending 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, the Sky Pod provides a virtual time-lapse visual experience showing how the view of New York City has changed from the 1500’s to today. 

Once up at the Observatory, take in the iconic sights, surrounding waters, and panoramas of the skyline and beyond. Then look toward the horizon and feel the city’s invincible spirit. Select the option to include 2 drinks on the deck, and feel the height of sophistication with a glass of wine in hand taking in the stunning views. 

Explore 3 levels filled with innovation and inspiration:
- 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.
