New York Observation Deck: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, not every citizen of the world can get to New York, but everyone can at least plan what is new to visit there when the coveted visa is pasted into the passport. … We recommend that you include it in your must-visit list a new observation deck at the One Vanderbilt skyscraper, which opened in September last year.
One Vanderbilt with 67 floors is the tallest building in the Midtown area, it is in the center of Manhattan, near the Grand Central Station. Its height along the spire is 427 meters, along the roof – 397 meters. Among the skyscrapers of New York, One Vanderbilt is the fourth tallest after One World Trade Center, Central Park Tower, and 111 West 57th Street. The view from here, of course, is an enviable one.
The observation deck was set up at a height of about 305 meters, and yes, the floor here is absolutely transparent. The elevator (also transparent) takes off to this height in 42 seconds, and only the “starting” height, because as many as four floors have been adapted to entertain the daredevils in the skyscraper. Climbing higher, to a height of 324 meters, you find yourself in the glass room “Levitation”, where art objects are exhibited. The maximum rise for the curious and the brave is 364 meters. According to the plan, restaurants are to appear here, as well as a green space, which is positioned as the world’s highest urban “alpine meadow”.
Within the framework of the project, and installation from Kenzo Digital was prepared: “Air” is several mirrored rooms in which the urban environment is bizarrely reflected. The authors of the project are the team of the architectural bureau, Kohn Pedersen Fox. All this transparent beauty took $ 3.3 billion.
The site will open to visitors on October 21.
