Very ... very ... interesting ... to see this building is fascinating

NEW YORK | Nearly 14 years after the collapse of the twin towers, the new
One World Trade Center tower finally open to the public on 29 May. The
opening of the observation platform at the top of One World Trade Center is
undoubtedly the most anticipated event this spring in New York. The tower
1776 feet high (in homage to the year of American independence) is the
highest in the Western Hemisphere.



 
 
 
 
The platform is built on three floors (100th, 101st and 102nd). The
view is 381 meters high, unsurprisingly, breathtaking. For reference, the
observation platform of the Empire State Building is located at 373 meters and
the Rockefeller Center is 259 meters.



 
 
 
 
102 floors in 60 seconds



 
 
 
 
The multimedia experience starts on the ground floor. After passing the
security check, visitors will line in a tunnel, where the foundations of the
tower will be exhibited. Another corridor presents multimedia portraits
of men and women who have worked in rebuilding the tower.



 
 
 
 




 
 
 
 
Five lifts (Sky pods) transport visitors from 1st to 102nd floor in 60
seconds. They are among the fastest in the world. The walls of the lifts
are LED screens that project images of the New York skyline from the 1600s
to the present, as if it was outside the ascent in a glass cube.



 
 
 
 
At the 102nd floor, we find the theater "See Forever," which presents a
film about the reconstruction of the site and the 101st floor, there are
three restaurants. Au 100th floor, it has a 360 degree panorama of the city.
 We see the George Washington Bridge up there and all Brooklyn. One
unfortunately can not go outside like the "Top of the World" old twin towers.



 
 
 
 
Tickets ($ 32 for adults and $ 26 for children) Access to the
observatory will be free for the families of the victims and rescuers. It is
estimated that the observatory will generate revenues of $ 875 million over 15
years.
