One World Trade Center’s Observatory is one of the hottest new attractions of 2015. TPG Editor-in-Chief Zach Honig got to ride the express elevator up to the 102nd floor ahead of the official opening on May 29.

Following years of anticipation and pushed back deadlines, the World Trade Center’s public observatory is finally set to open this Friday, May 29. The One World Observatory sports a super-fast elevator (to the 102nd floor), three restaurants on 101, and an enormous viewing room on 100, which spans the entire floor.

TPG got an early look at New York’s hottest attraction this week — we’ll be back with more tomorrow, but in the meantime, check out the view from the 100th floor, facing north toward the Empire State Building, Union Square and the rest of Midtown Manhattan. Below you’ll find the 40-megapixel image in all its high-res glory, shot with an Olympus E-M5 Mark II (pan and zoom to explore NYC!).
