With the same name as the original North Tower, One World Trade Center (or Freedom Tower) is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and the sixth-tallest in the world. Soaring 1,776 feet above lower Manhattan, this towering structure stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site. Offering premier office space on the first 99 floors, One World Observatory is at the top on the 100th, 101st, and 102nd floors. Take an incredible elevator ride up 1,250 feet for a bird's eye view of New York City's iconic sights, surrounding river, and skyline, as well as New Jersey. In addition to the main observatory, there are three restaurants, an exhibit called Voices, and the Sky Portal, which shows a live video feed of ground-level.
