Trip to World Trade Center
Hello everyone! I decided to describe my trip with my family to the World Trade Center complex. I know all about Twin Towers tragedy and I am still so sad about that. I still can’t believe something like that happened. I also saw there the Memorial of 9/11 and two big pools which represent the memory of the Original World Trade Center.
One World Trade Center
When I first saw that new building (Freedom Tower) I was surprised because it was so huge for me. I know that somewhere in the world are much bigger and higher buildings but you know I don’t live in a country where it is possible to have those buildings built.
When we were in New York we lived exactly in the center of the action - Times Square. We lived in a really nice hotel there, called Sheraton. So we moved one morning from a hotel and we traveled through the New York streets by bus. We saw a few small parks, harbor and also Chinatown. Our last stop was under this nice building - One WTC. But there we were just walking around. I think we were walking more than traveling by bus. In my opinion, the view from the bottom is the best view of how to see those nice buildings. I was there for the first time so that was the reason for my amazement.
Freedom Tower really is a beautiful and great building. The best of all was when I stayed on the street next to the skyscraper and looked up. It was amazing. This building is for me one and only mean which forced me to think that the world is too big to live here with better people than nowadays. That’s the meaning of the Freedom Tower for me.
One World Observatory
We were in New York for the first time so we decided to see that amazing city from another corner. So the best way how to see it from above was visiting One World Observatory which you can find directly in the highest building there - One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower).
Another Way to See the City
It is also possible to see New York from the top of Empire State Building but our travel guide recommended us that better view is from One WTC. From there you can see already the Empire State Building and much more. So that was the reason why we should visit One World Observatory.
From the top of the building, you will see the surrounding area - bridges, sea, rivers, skyscrapers and the whole New York City. If you are afraid of height I think there will be not a problem. From the top, it doesn’t seem everything smaller because every skyscraper is huge and probably almost at the same level.
So if you think that it is a good idea to see New York from above (with Empire State Building) then I can recommend you to visit this place or you may visit Empire State Building and then you will see the whole New York City also with the World Trade Center complex. That was my visit to the World Trade Center. Bye for now!
