“Standing as a shining beacon for the new Downtown, and a bold addition to the skyline, One World Trade Center is safe, sustainable, and artistically dynamic. Soaring to a symbolic 1,776 feet — it is the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building, and already an iconic New York landmark. Building Facts Opened October 2014 Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (David M. Childs) Tallest of new WTC Complex 104 Stories / 1776 feet high 3 million rentable square feet of space 55 foot high office lobby 54 High-speed destination dispatch passenger elevators Life-safety systems far exceed NYC building code Bound by West, Fulton, Washington and Vesey Streets 55% leased to tenants including Condé Nast                              DESIGN With entrances on all 4 sides of the building, One WTC has been designed to smoothly integrate traffic of visitors & office tenants.  The cubic base has a footprint identical to the original Twin Towers.  The surface of the base is clad in more than 2,000 pieces of shimmering prismatic glass.  The tower ascends 69 stories — its edges chamfered back to form 8 isosceles triangles, a perfect octagon at center.   It culminates in a square, glass parapet at the crown, its crystalline form creating a vibrant effect, as light refracts like a kaleidoscope, changing throughout the day.  The “One World Observatory” — opening 2015 — is an enclosed observation deck rising 1,250 ft. above street level.  The crown of One WTC is a 408-foot spire — consisting of a mast and a communication platform ring.  At night, a beacon at the top sends out a horizontal light beam, which can be seen from miles away. ”

“Wall Street is an eight-block-long street running roughly northwest to southeast from Broadway to South Street, at the East River, in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Over time, the term has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial services industry (even if financial firms are not physically located there), or New York–based financial interests.”

“Heres another historic monuments that our country infamously had to experience on September 11, 2001. Here you'll find water fountain and other memorabilia representing this event.”

Pier
“While ticket sellers will try to make you purchase tickets to see the Statue of Liberty, you can hop on the Staten Island Ferry to see Lady Liberty up close as well as the Verrazano's Narrow's Bridge. If you wish to step foot onto Liberty Island, I recommend getting tickets online via Groupon as they may be twice as cheeper than getting it from a ticket agent.”
