More than 10 years in the making, the observation deck on the top three floors of the One World Trade Center -- on the 100th to 103rd floors, 1,200 feet above Manhattan -- is set to open on May 29. You can buy your tickets right now, ahead of the opening. Here's what you need to know:
The 100th level also features the Sky Portal, where you can step onto a 14-foot-wide circular disc in the floor for a live HD view of the city streets below. One floor up, you'll find a fine dining restaurant, a café, and a bar.
Just can't wait? According to the New York Post, on May 28, preview admission will be free on a first come, first served basis. More details on that are to come. In the meantime, to get you in the mood, you can watch "The Rise" -- a crowdsourced video composed of Instagram images documenting the early stages of the building construction through its recent completion.
