This is the view from the spectacular One World Observatory at the top of One World Trade Center, New York. It is currently the tallest building in the Western hemisphere. It is 104 stories high or 1776 ft. The lift takes just 60 seconds to get to the top and you have a 360 degree view of New York. On a clear day, you can see up to 60 miles away, as well as the curvature of the earth. It is very tranquil at the top, away from the hubbub of Manhattan.
