New York City is home to some of the world’s most famous observation decks, including the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, and the One World Observatory.
However, there is a new kid on the block that is taking the city by storm: SUMMIT One Vanderbilt.
Located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt opened in September 2020 and is already making waves as one of the most immersive and unique observation deck experiences in the city.

At 1401 feet high, it is also the fourth tallest building in New York City, offering breathtaking views of the skyline and beyond.
But what sets SUMMIT apart from the other observation decks in the city is its focus on creating an immersive and interactive experience for visitors.
From the moment you enter, you are transported into a world of sensory overload, with artist-designed exhibits, trippy displays, and even a room called “Transcendence,” which took three years to design.
One of the most unique features of SUMMIT is the ability to experience different weather conditions, including lightning storms, snowstorms, and rainstorms, all while enjoying the stunning skyline views.
This is made possible through the use of lighting and special effects, creating an all-encompassing experience that truly transports you to another world.
In addition to the immersive exhibits, SUMMIT also offers several dining options, including a cafe with a stunning view of the Empire State Building, and the largest outdoor elevator in the world, taking visitors on a breathtaking ascent to almost the top of the building.
While the views from the top are undeniably breathtaking, what truly sets SUMMIT apart is the overall experience it offers visitors.
From the trippy exhibits to the sensory overload rooms, SUMMIT is not just an observation deck but a complete experience that will leave visitors awestruck and wanting more.
Tickets for SUMMIT One Vanderbilt start at $39, which includes access to the immersive exhibits and observation deck.
For an additional $20, visitors can experience the thrilling ascent to the top of the building on the largest outdoor elevator in the world.
In a city filled with iconic landmarks and tourist attractions, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is quickly becoming a must-see destination for visitors and locals alike.
If you’re looking for a truly unique and immersive experience in New York City, be sure to add SUMMIT One Vanderbilt to your list.
