Go up to the new viewpoint of the One World Trade Center
Finally came what many expected. The viewpoint of the recently opened One World Trade Center, better known as Freedom Tower. This observatory, which comes to join the already very famous and visited Empire State Building and the Top of the Rock, opened its doors to the public on Friday, May 29.
