There’s definitely something surreal about the whole area of Ground Zero and One World Trade Center. Such an interesting vibe that just makes you pause for a minute to think to yourself “holy sh!t, I can’t imagine what it was like on that day.” Back on 9/11, I remember saying to a buddy “you know, our kids are going to be learning about this in history class one day.” Crazy. The world’s largest man-made waterfalls are now where the former towers once stood, and there’s a memorial all around them. And if you look up, you’ll see One World Trade Centre. Such a gorgeous building.
We wanted to check out the One World Observatory at night, and it’s very cool. You start by entering this long, white corridor.
Then you go learn some cool facts about the building, as well as its construction and history.
The One World Observatory is at the very top (duh, where else would it be?), and I have to say, it blows the pants off of the observation deck at the Empire State Building. Much less busy, the lineups are not NEARLY as stupid, you don’t have to fight your way to a viewpoint, and hey, just the significance of where you are. Pretty sweet 360 degree view as well.
