Happy hour at One World OBservatory
We're returning to the top of the World Trade Center to enjoy its spectacular views. If you couldn't make this popular event last year, now's your chance!
One World Observatory offers stunning views, but even before you arrive at the top, there are great things to see. On the way to the elevator, there’s a video montage of personal stories of the people who built the Freedom Tower, and even the elevator ride itself is an incredible exhibit about New York City! At the top, when you can tear yourself away from the giant floor-to-ceiling windows in all directions, there are multi-media presentations and other fun diversions.
Gather with fellow Illini at a designated spot (TBD) within the Main Observatory, after you’ve gone through the preliminary exhibits at your own pace. We will have a specific entry time at 6:30pm, but there is some leeway on either side in case you are running late or want to get there a little earlier. The observatory is open until 10:00pm - you may want to stick around for the sunset!
