Nic + I just got back from the best weekend trip to New York City to visit friends, celebrate birthdays, and explore the city! I, naturally, took a ton of pictures and have so much I want to share on GAC. I thought about doing one round-up post about what we did + where we went. But, then I decided just as NYC is one large city, that would’ve been too large of a post. So, I’m breaking it up into a few posts! Starting with One World Trade Center!
Visiting the new World Trade Center was high on our list of things to do while in NYC and we are SO happy we were able to fit this in! Construction on One WTC began in 2006 with the building officially opening in October 2014 to office tenants and the new observatory just opened on May 29, 2015.
It’s unbelievable how tall this building + I just kept thinking how small the other skyscrapers looked compared to this new beauty! Standing at 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center is now the tallest building in New York City + the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere! Oh + it’s also the 4th tallest building in the world!
And of course The Empire State Building…And the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg Bridges…
Needless to say, when in NYC, One World Trade Center’s observatory is an absolute MUST when visiting!
