SUMMIT One Vanderbilt took the city by storm this past year allowing even the most jaded of New Yorkers to experience NYC like they never have before–from 1,100 feet up in the sky. In just one year they’ve become quite the NYC destination, holding titles like “Best Landmark in the United States” by Tiqests and one of the most Instagrammable places in the world by ELLE Magazine.
But they’re way more than just an observation deck!
A multisensory, immersive experience, SUMMIT allows guests to step out onto fully transparent glass sky boxes, suspending them a heart-racing 1,100 feet above Madison Avenue. The external glass-bottomed elevator is the largest in the world and takes visitors an additional 120 feet up the side of the building. The thrills are complemented by a two-story awe-striking room filled with 30,375 square feet of mirrors. Those who go also love taking pictures in the room with hundreds of floating reflective balloons. These are just some of the experiences to be explored!
Not only is SUMMIT one of NYC’s most thrilling immersive journeys, since their opening they’ve been supporting the city we love so much in its post-pandemic recovery. They’re a driving force behind NYC’s growth–providing hundreds of jobs, welcoming over 1.4 million guests, and supporting local charities by donating 1% of all ticket sales.
Today, on the first anniversary of opening their doors, they’re encouraging guests to share their own personal journey of emotion and discovery to showcase that no two experiences at SUMMIT are alike.
To celebrate their anniversary, they are taking to the streets. Keep an eye out in midtown for cabs branded with SUMMIT reflective balloons as they will be offering free rides and tickets to SUMMIT (October 21 and 22 between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.).
Across three floors of six immersive spaces, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt provides guests an unforgettable thrilling experience that leaves them awestruck–how will SUMMIT awaken your senses?
