– One fun fact about the spire; having an emission point at this height can be a huge opportunity for communication. But actually, any wave pass through the spire. The simple raison is that if it was use as a communication antenna, it can’t count in the building high. And in that case, we couldn’t say that the high of the tower is 1,776 ft. I learnt that the Empire State Building has the same trick.
The prize of the tickets begin at $37, then it evolves if you want to go there late in the evening. Nevertheless, you still can pay $37 if you arrive before 6:30pm, and then wait for the sunset in the observatory. The place close at 10pm. I also recommend you to buy your tickets on the website https://oneworldobservatory.com/tickets/ , then you will spare $3 and avoid the line.
The view is just fantastic, it allows you to see as well the Empire State Building and the ocean.
