NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The observation deck at One World Trade Center will not open until 2015 but the tower’s developers are offering a glimpse of what they call the guest experience.
The observation deck will occupy the tower’s 100th through 102nd floors. Elevators will whisk visitors to the top in just one minute but the experience of visiting the attraction will take an hour.
“Our lookout on the world is back,” Port Authority Chairman David Samson said.
Visitors to the observation deck at One World Trade Center will learn about the building’s history while they’re waiting in line downstairs and watch a video on the tower’s 102nd floor before the actual panoramic view is revealed, officials developing the attraction said.
