What is One World Trade Center?

"The tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and home to One World Observatory, NYC's highest viewing platform"

"Also known as the Freedom Tower, it has the same name as the Twin Towers' North Tower that stood nearby until Sept 11, 2001" 

What is the best time to visit?

"Each time has its benefits, early morning is less crowded, but sunset is the most beautiful" 

"Time your visit for an hour or so before sunset, then stay to watch the city light up"

What are the One World Observatory opening hours?

"The Observatory’s regular opening hours are 10 AM to 7 PM every day, extended to 9 AM to 9 PM in summer"

"The ticket and security lines on the ground floor can be long, so book in advance to save time getting to the top"

What are the best bits?

"The 360-degree views are great, but the elevator ride to the top is breathtaking too — 102 floors in 47 seconds with a cool multimedia show"

Where should I go next?

"The Battery, 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Wall Street, and The Oculus are all nearby"

"Or walk 15 minutes to the Brooklyn Bridge for more brilliant views of Lower Manhattan"
