About the observatory

One World Trade Center, or Freedom Tower as some still affectionately call it, is a symbol of resilience and unity. Built on the very site where the Twin Towers once stood, it is not just a building, it’s a testament to human strength and determination. Standing at a jaw-dropping 1,776 feet, it’s the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, offering unparalleled views of Manhattan and beyond.

Once you reach the top, get ready to be utterly mesmerized. The 360-degree panoramic view of the city is simply breathtaking. From the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building, every iconic landmark is within your grasp. You can gaze upon the city that never sleeps, witnessing its pulse as it thrives below you.

  • Spectacular 360-degree views
  • Fast-track entry available
