A tower of commerce that became a sacred space

One World Trade Center Observatory Deck opened in May 2015
NEW YORK---At 1,776 feet tall, One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. Standing as a shining beacon for religious freedom, the 100th floor of the Observatory, also known as the Discovery Level, provides expansive 360-degree views in all directions of the surrounding waters and the New York City. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east.
