There are a million things to experience in New York City, but there’s only one way to see them all at once. You can start by hopping a Sky Pod to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. There, 102 stories up, find yourself...more

This is a wonderful building and definitely stands tall in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. However the observation deck is a bit dull. The lift to the top is good. Offers a good timelapse of the city skyline and also the first room is...More
I was looking forward to this visit since I had not been to the World Trade Center site since 9/11. While the elevator take less time to travel the 100 floors than my hotel's to travel 5, the crowds were rude and the site allows...More
Visited with friends and we were impressed. The experience of ascending 100+ floors in under a minute was impressive in itself, but the show when stepping out of the lift really was the highlight. Views as you would expect are great and a real contrast...More
Of all the things we did in NYC this was by far the most disappointing. We wanted to avoid the tourist trap, and have a meal at One Dine for the view instead. But being made to buy a Skypod pass meant being herded up...More
This is an absolute must whether you’re visiting NYC or living there. I highly suggest the VIP tour!! It’s so worthwhile and worth the $70 admission price. Not only do you learn more about 9-11, but you learn about the structures past and present, and...More
This should be New Yorks # 1. The elevator ride is entertaining. Then a slide show against a wall that opens to the best view ever. Just breathtaking. Do not miss. Probably the best value in NYC and if you want you can have a...More
The staff of this observatory is very well organized and large crowds are handled very professionally and moved along quickly. Nevertheless, it is crowded and it is not always easy to take photos without jostling and inconsiderate tourists, from all over the world. The view...More
As a novice to NYC, had lots of friends and relatives recommendations on places to go and see. This one was the one that blew us away.
102 floors and just under a minute to reach top where views are truly amazing. Bar and restaurant...More
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.

I'd allow 2 hrs. You'll be surprised that even the elevator ride to the top is exciting and educational. We did the "self tour" with the Ipad and loved it. Then, there is a restaurant you may want to consider for your brunch! Check out the website for One World Trade.
