Today, Architectural Digest invited Instagrammers and media folk alike to beam up to the 100th floor of the notoriously spaceship-like One World Trade Center for a(nother) preview of the blockbuster new Old World Observatory, which officially opens to the public this Friday, May 29. Even on a very moody, gray morning, Gotham still shone. Curbed NY had this to say about the space:
For New Yorkers, the "step-right-up showmanship" of the whole thing may be off-putting given the trauma and emotion attached to the site, but the views are undeniably amazing and will impress even the most seasoned local. While the views are clearly the main draw of the observatory, Legends aims to boost the trip to the top of the tallest tower in the western hemisphere with videos and interactive displays—after all, if you're paying $32 per person, there better be something more—but really, who wants to look at a screen when you're 100 stories above Manhattan? Below, 9 of the best shots from the event.
