On November 3, 2014, the fourth tallest skyscraper in the world and the tallest in the Western Hemisphere opened. Where is it? In New York City , at 285 Fulton Street, built on the site that housed the World Trade Center with the Twin Towers until 2001. With its 541 meters, 1776 feet representing the year of the declaration of independence of the United States, it is the tallest in the city, taking away the primacy of the Empire State Building (381 m). The tower, which is the main tower of the New World Trade Center , stands in the northeast corner of the site. It is also known unofficially as the Freedom Tower and other buildings will rise around it, one of which is residential. The observatory was inaugurated on May 29th and from floors 100, 101 and 102 it is possible to enjoy the panoramic view of the entire Manhattan. At the entrance, visitors are greeted at the Welcome Center, by the welcome message on a large video programmed in various languages and by the introductory projection entitled "Voices of the Building" dedicated to the birth of the One World Trade Center. Once at the level via dedicated elevators called "Sky Pods", viewers enter directly into the See Forever Theater where a short video describes hectic New York by combining images into a three-dimensional view. Then, on floor 100, through the interactive City Pulse panorama, guests can virtually admire the city's neighborhoods and monuments up close. Also on this floor it is possible to walk on a circular screen that offers a fantastic view of the streets of the Big Apple. Today, next to Tower One, where the Twin Towers used to be , there are two square fountains the same size as the base of the towers. They are a memorial to the victims of that day: all the names are engraved on the bronze panels of the fountains.
