How much where the tickets for the original WTC observation deck? I know inflation and price changes have occurred, but I'm curious how it stacks up against the $32.

I guess considering the ESB is $29, its really not that pricey for the deck.

The Shard in London costs £32.95 for an adult, which converts today at $53.10 - so I'd say $32 to go up One World Trade is a bargain!

Something I'd gladly pay. Sad part is that I never actually went on the original deck. I was in 5th grade when the towers went down. So for me, this is a completely new experience to be honest. Sad because my only memory of them was seeing them come down. First time I went into the city I was I believe in 8th grade. NYC was a late experience for me, and my only recollection of the towers was from images and videos of that day.

What's to prevent terrorists from hijacking one of those TAP enrolled vehicles and get through the security that way?

Construction over?

I'm still very new when it comes to understanding how threads work on this form. So when do these "construction" threads actually end? Will I be able to see all these posts for the past 7 years once the building opens? One World Trade Center is basically finished so where does this conversation go?

"Basically" finished is not the same as finished. I don't want to open a thread in the buidings & architecture forum and see photos of a bulding that's not completed.

This thread will be laid to rest with all of the completed projects in this section of the forum...

The memorial is accessible from the northwest and southeast portions of the site. There is a fence on Greenwich. I'm assuming the fence will come down on the north end when the Freedom Tower opens.

I don't know, these things tend to go up, not down.

People will pay it. There will be discount options, like those tourism packages people get for under a hundred bucks that offer access to more places than you can actually visit.


I don't even remember how much it cost to go up to the original deck. I used to keep stubs for those sorts of things, but if I have one it's stacked away somewhere.

For a comparison, here's a scan of a brochure from the original...

Some of the competition...









We now need a video for 30 Hudson's deck. The deck at 1 Vanderbilt probably hasn't been designed.

Younglings! I was in 7th grade. Unfortunately I never visited New York when I was a kid. So the new observation deck will certainly provide a new experience.
