Rise above the rest of New York with your One World Observatory tickets!

If you want to avoid crowds, the best time to visit One World Observatory is between 8am and 10am, before the tourist buses arrive. But, for the most spectacular views during your New York vacation, you’ll want to arrive before sunset. As early mornings are also the busiest time, arrive early to get a spot near the windows. Weather wise, the best time to visit One World Observatory is any time that the skies are clear. If there are low-lying clouds or rains, you might want to reschedule. Summer and winter months both have their own charms. It might be nice to see the skyscrapers blanketed in snow, but poor visibility could be a dampener.
As the tallest building in America, One World Trade is pretty easy to find. But, getting there is another story altogether. Most travellers will likely use the subway. If you choose this mode of transportation, you will need to take the A or C train to Chambers St., E train to One World Trade, the 2,3,4 or 5 train to Fulton St., the 1 train to Rector St., or the R or W train to Cortland St. Those using the bus system should take the M20 bus towards South Ferry and alight at Vesey St./North End Ave. or the M55 bus towards South Ferry and alight at Broadway/Cortland St.
