One World Trade Centre (also known as World Trade Centre or Freedom Tower) is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Centre complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The supertall structure has the same name as the North Tower of the original World Trade Centre, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The viewing platform is at 541 meters high on the 104th floor. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Centre site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Centre. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east. The tower was opened to the public in May 2015.
The views from this structure, arguably offer some of the best of any viewing platform in the world! There is a restaurant and bar that need to be booked in advance, or the standard viewing area does offer a café bar. With the 911 memorial and museum located at the foot of the tower, you’ll want to set aside an entire day to explore this area.
