If you live in NYC and don’t feel small yet, you definitely will after this. Located on the 102nd floor of the World Trade Center, this observation deck offers 360° views of the whole city. But before getting to the top you have to wait in line, go through intense security, and then get on an elevator ride which shows you the architectural timeline of New York City, evolving as the elevator goes up and arrives to the 102nd floor. Pictured is the view looking into Brooklyn- you can see both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges in this photo and even though you can’t see it, there is also a view of the Williamsburg Bridge. You can really see the whole outline of Manhattan from this observation deck and if you’ve been in denial of Manhattan being an island you’ll feel like an idiot after seeing it for yourself. I have tons more pictures from up here but I loved this one so much that I wanted to give it its own spotlight.
This was my first time visiting the One World Observatory. After visiting the Top Of The Rock three times (which I will eventually do a separate post on), I wasn’t expecting to be too entertained just because I’ve been told that nothing beats it. But as said before, it exceeded my expectations. If you’re going to visit, I highly suggest buying your tickets ahead of time just because of the whole time-slot situation- it’s not just a pay-and-go kind of thing. Next up for observation decks on my list is the Empire State Building- if you know of any more I should check out please message me them in my ask box! 🙂
