The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has revealed what the state-of-the-art observatory that will open at One World Trade Center will offer visitors.

On floors 100 to 102 of the building, it has breathtaking views of the city as well as other features.

Its “Skypod” elevators will give visitors the “experience of being outside the building as they make their ascent and descent in a quick 60 seconds,” according to the Port Authority.

The observatory will also offer several dining options and an event space.

“One World Observatory will be a magnificent facility, a championship-caliber attraction that will make Lower Manhattan a premiere destination for New Yorkers and visitors from around the world,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. “This spectacular venue is yet another step forward in the rebirth of the World Trade Center, of Lower Manhattan, and demonstrates the remarkable resilience of America.”
