Prosecutors are investigating the procurement process behind a contract awarded to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ company to operate the observation deck at One World Trade Center.
New York City fire officials say six people, including a child, suffered slight burns when a piece of camera equipment caught fire inside the observation deck of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
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.
Hundreds of people will lace up their sneakers to scale 1,576 steps up the Empire State Building.
