The observation deck is the best view of the city, but the expense is fairly high for what amounts to walking around a room for 15 minutes. The 'skip the line' ticket simply allows you to go to a seperate line through security. After that, everyone is in the same line for the elevator, everyone is in the same line for the 'movie', everyone is in the same line to get through the mandatory picture area, and everyone is in the same line to get through the 'upsale' area where they try and sell you a tablet that explains what you are looking at (not sure how anyone with a smart phone thinks this is helpful). The trip is a continuous and unavoidable attempt to sell you additional services and products.

The views were all inspiring, and I was very glad to be there. It did not disappoint from the beginning of walking in to the elevator ride to the sites at the very top on the observation deck. When we had questions, the staff were absolutely awesome. If we get back to New York, we would absolutely want our daughters to come up with us.

the memorial has been so well laid out and a touching remembrance of those lives that were lost and the people that supported the cause.
