Last week I had the opportunity to take an express elevator to what felt like the top of the world. As soon as you enter past the airport-like security, your sensory experience begins - much like waiting in line for a popular ride at Disney. No detail was overlooked when creating this beautiful journey to #seeforever. I don't want to spoil any of the many surprises, but as a New Yorker I would highly recommend taking your family to the One World Trade Observatory. It's different then your typical tourist location; it's moving, emotional and powerful.
I couldn't stop myself from taking photos every few minutes, the views were just incredible. It was around 11am by the time we arrived at the observatory. The sun was high enough in the sky to make shooting through the windows without capturing the reflection of your neighbors a difficult task. I was up to the challenge, and I feel my photographs showcase an experience that I will not soon forget.
The observatory is a hard place to leave, you could stare out the floor to ceiling windows for hours. Make sure you take a moment to put your phone, camera or iPad down, take a deep breath and take it all in.
