Observing New York: Today and in TR's Time

May 29, 2015

Today One World Observatory officially opens to the public on top of One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the western hemisphere. Guests will be treated to panoramic views of a truly great city. One World Observatory will also offer complimentary admission to 9/11 family members and the rescue workers who responded to the disaster.

To honor New York and celebrate the opening of the observatory, we take a look at how NYC appeared in TR's time.
