Full description
Situated at the top of the iconic modern landmark One Vanderbilt, SUMMIT changes our relationship with cities, environment, and ourselves through immersive, multi-sensory experiences. Off the main concourse of Grand Central Terminal, learn the incredible story behind the creation of SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, and prepare yourself for a memorable experience. Designed with the intention of transcending everyday existence, SUMMIT offers an opportunity to engage with space in a fascinating new way. Your experience at SUMMIT begins with a sensory stimulating elevator ride to the 91st floor. From there, you are immediately transported into SUMMIT AIR, a new way to see and interact with space designed by Kenzo Digital. Layered with two floors of floor to ceiling mirrors, AIR offers a whole new perspective of the city as the Manhattan skyline reflects all around you. Next, test your limits at SUMMIT LEVITATION and enjoy the rush of stepping out over the city on two glass ledges suspended 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue. Continue through the different levels of SUMMIT and become part of the art. Watch your image float in the clouds across a multi-media screen and get in touch with your playful side in the silver balloon AFFINITY room. Once you reach the 93rd floor, take in the sights and sounds of NYC from another vantage point on the outdoor observation deck. For a more intimate, adult-friendly evening experience, choose to visit SUMMIT during Air at Night. Guests can enjoy access to all areas of the attraction, an LED light show with accompanying vivacious music, and cocktails for purchase at the 93rd floor bar.

Summit one just redefines what an observatory is and is really giving you the bang for the buck by 4 times. This is my fifth observatory after empire state, one world , Willis tower and John Hancock. What makes this outstanding is its an artwork to be experienced with a magnificent view in not just one floor, but 3 to 4 floors including an exterior level. No one gets bored here. Kids have the air section to spend a good amount of time . Highly recommended. As a cherry on the top, it have an entrance direct from the grand central terminal

Great experience, I deduct a star for the waiting time at the elevator at the bottom and the (for me) superfluous photo stations (your face as a cloud e.g. & photo stations at the beginning and in between) which then of course cost money in the end (and are not particularly great). Otherwise great rooms, great idea and great view!

It was well worth it for the price especially to see the view with interesting installments to make your instagram pictures even more outstanding! would highly recommend. spent about 1.5 hrs here! do not miss the bathrooms for they have the best views :-). You also have to wear shoe covers! bring a pair of sunglasses if you’re going during the day. also, there are plenty more views on different floors that are less crowded than the first room.
