At 10AM tickets go on sale for the Observation Deck of 1 World Trade Center (HERE), and of course I considered buying tickets and going (I went to the 9/11 Memorial the day after it opened, but have yet to go to the museum).
The reason I haven’t gone to the museum, and won’t be buying tickets to the observation deck, is the price.
Standard pricing for 1WTC is: Adult $32, Senior $30, Child $26 (9/11 family members get in free).
Those prices are obscene.
But then again, so are most of the observation decks here in the city, so I guess it just depends which view of the city you’d like.
- 1WTC: Adult $32, Senior $30, Child $26
- Empire State Building: Adult $32, Senior $29, Child $26
- Top of the Rock: Adult $30, Senior $28, Child $20
These are all places that one day I’d want to go visit…but today is not that day.
