The Observatory of the One World Trade Center, the building where the Twin Towers stood, will open up next May 29th.

Where is the One World Observatory located?

It is in the Financial District, south of Manhattan. The One World Trade Center was constructed after the attacks of September 11, 2001.
To learn more about the reconstruction projects after 9/11, read more about in this NYCTT article.

What can you seen from there?

Since it is south of Manhattan, the view will be very different from the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock.
It’s the same view one had from the Twin Towers, towards the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, New Jersey, Brooklyn and Manhattan from the South.

Here’s a video of what you will see:

How much will it cost to access to the Observatory?

The list of rates depends on age:
– Free for 0-5 years old,
– $ 26 for 6-12 years old,
– $ 32 for 13-64 years old,
– $ 30 for 65 years old and over.

There will be a special fee for groups of over 20 people that will be determined soon.

Can you already book your visit?

Yes, you’ll be able to book your visit starting April 8, at 10 am (EDT).

Conclusion

If you go to New York in June, this summer or during the coming months, you will have access to this new attraction in New York.
My guess is there will be many people at first, you’ll have to go very early in the morning or at night to avoid standing in line for too long…
I hope I can tell you soon how the view is, that means I have to go to New York soon 😉
