Prepare to walk on air at the world’s most immersive observatory experience coming to NYC this October!
SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is the best new way to see the city. Opening to the public on October 21, SUMMIT takes visitors over 1,000 feet into the sky for an observatory experience that lets you explore the city like never before!
Step out onto the fully transparent glass sky boxes called “Levitation” for a heart-racing perspective that places you 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue. Stand atop your favorite skyscrapers and take in the breathtaking sights all around you.
Feeling even more adventurous? Soar over 1,200 feet above New York City in the thrilling, all-glass “Ascent” elevators that will take you 364 feet up the side of the building. Be astonished by the crystal clear views as you float your way to the highest panoramic viewing point in Midtown on the world’s largest exterior glass-floor elevators.
Not only is SUMMIT One Vanderbilt NYC’s newest transformational experience—and might we add, the city’s best photo-op—it’s an immersive journey that goes above and beyond with art, cocktails and incredible attractions.
Journey into an infinite universe at “Air,” a walk-through art experience designed by Kenzo Digital that reimagines our reality of physics and time.
“Likened to a Central Park in the sky,” Air is “an immersion in nature in the heart of Manhattan.” Explore the first chapter of Air, Transcendence, that molds reflectivity and transparency through a mind-bending optical illusion.
Perfect for newcomers or longtime locals, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is an experience for all thrill-seekers and adventurers.
The space will also feature an open air terrace bar called Après, helmed by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events. Guests will be able to sip on handcrafted cocktails and culinary creations in New York’s highest outdoor garden.
SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is redefining the space between nature and the built environment for an unforgettable personal experience that will leave you awestruck.
Located in Midtown (at 45 E. 42nd St.), the entrance is directly in Grand Central!
Tickets to SUMMIT start at $39 for adults, with special pricing for New York City residents available online only. Visitors will be able to check out this magnificent observatory Thursday – Sunday beginning October 21.
