This was a great way to see the city view. Although the cost is reasonable finding a Groupon discount made it even better. My son loved seeing the city from so high up.

I don't know about you but large cities are so often difficult to get an over-view of the area. At the Top of the World you get to do just that and it is a 360 degree view. There is information there about 9/11 and...More

Cost $5 per person, but should only be $2. Windows really cloud the view. Not really marked what you are looking at. Don't bother.

Somebody has to cover the costs. The price wasn't bad. Where else could you have gotten a great view.
