In the wake of recent developments pertaining to COVID-19 – and motivated by concern for the health and safety of all guests and employees – One World Observatory has temporarily suspended operations, effective March 14, 2020. The decision was made out of a strict abundance of caution and without any reported incident. The Observatory will update this page as necessary to include any further details regarding an opening date.

We will be reaching out to individuals possessing pre-purchased admissions and clients with confirmed event bookings to assist them in making alternative arrangements.

Since its opening in 2015, the Observatory has remained a popular international tourist destination, annually welcoming visitors from around the world and across the country. The Observatory maintains its commitment to serving the community by providing a unique way to experience New York City, and looks forward to re-welcoming visitors as soon as possible.
