We invite you to watch pictures and film which present views from an observation deck of the New York skyscraper – One World Trade Center.

An observation deck on the top of One World Trade Center will be opened for visitors from 29th May. All invited journalists were admiring (and photographing) the views from the skyscraper last Wednesday.


The One World Trade Center office, which was opened in November 2014, is over 500 m high. It is located at Manhattan – on the height of the 104th floor, whereas the observation deck of One World Observatory is situated on the 100th, 101st and 102nd levels. Within doors, the structure charms with views overlooking New York and the Atlantic. Supposedly, the visibility in a sunny day extends as far as 80 km.


There are 5 elevators in the office which go to the top of the skyscraper within 47 seconds. Moreover, the film presenting the building of the investment is shown during the travel. The video shows some fragments of the towers of World Trade Center from before the terrorist attack on 11th September 2001. The authors were afraid that such solution may bring back sad memories, however, they admitted that it is the best way to honor the victims of tragic events.


At present, World Trade Center is the highest structure in the USA. Its building lasted 8 years and it cost 3,8 billion dollars. The first tenants started their work in the office in November 2014. World Trade Center is located in the central place of a 16-hectare plot on which two towers destroyed in the terrorist attack on 11th September 2001 were placed.
