The Suspense of the Thrill Below
I often imagine if Lower Manhattan had an amusement park with a built-in rollercoaster as its most popular spectacle, this image would probably be the view one would encounter at the summit of the first (and typically highest) incline, only seconds before it immediately plunges to commence the thrill ride that ultimately ensues.
Alas, the reality is a depth-defying view of downtown NYC from the top of the tallest building in the United States. The 360º view from the masterfully designed, three-level observation deck of One World Trade Center (1 WTC) is utterly and undeniably superb.
Furthermore, if you’re fortunate enough to arrive to witness day transition into night over New York from the pinnacle of 1 WTC, the emotions you might experience may range from jubilant suspense and anticipation to unbridled and mesmerizing awe.
New York City — Restless. Resilient. Remarkable.
