At 417m, the One World Observatory is the highest publicly open observation point in New York, which makes it the perfect place to see the city from above. From the Brooklyn Bridge to the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State, from here you can see it all.


  • See NYC develop in incredible time-lapse lift video
  • Absolutely unbeatable views of Manhattan and New York
  • Bar & restaurant with magnificent views over the Hudson River
  • Stand on a glass floor and see what’s happening beneath your feet!


The One World Observatory really is a spectacular experience, one that you´ll never forget. The fun starts when you arrive and you’re greeted on giant screens in your native language. Then, the elevator ride to the top provides you with a quick visual history of New York. Quick because the lift goes up an incredible 102 floors in 47 seconds!

When you get to the top, you enter a darkened space and watch an impressive video of life in New York. When the film is finished, the screen lifts… To reveal the city below. This really is a magical moment. The views have to be seen to be believed. The Hudson, Manhattan, Brooklyn, all is there. The observatory is so high that you can even see the curvature of the Earth! All this makes One World Observatory one of New York’s definitive must-see experiences.
