Built on the site of New York's iconic Twin Towers, One World Trade Center stands as a tribute to the indefatigable American spirit.
With a height of 1,776 feet (an allusion to the year when the Declaration of Independence was signed), One World Trade Center — also known as the Freedom Tower — is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. While there is actual business going on inside, tourists can visit and pose for selfies outside the twisting glass façade and ride the ultra-fast Sky Pod elevator to the One World Observatory on the 102nd floor. The elevator itself is an attraction with LED monitors immersing visitors in a journey through 300 years of Manhattan history. Once at the top, you'll find a three-tiered observation deck offering sweeping city and harbor views through massive floor-to-ceiling windows. If you're feeling brave, step onto the 14-foot-wide Sky Portal to see real-time, high-definition footage projected from the streets below.
