TOP OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER OBSERVATORY HISTORY: The Top Of The World Trade Center Observatory was located in the WTC South Twin Tower #2. It had an indoor & outdoor observation deck that delivered a 360 degree view of New York City, allowing visitors to see up to 50 miles away with clear skies.
Once purchasing the Top Of The World Trade Center Observatory admission tickets, spectators were taken on a six minute virtual helicopter ride heading out of Verrazano Bridge, flying over Central Park, through Times Square & back to the World Trade Center buildings. Kiosks were located at various points in the exhibit verbally explaining the displays in a number of languages.
The Top Of The World Trade Center Observatory was complete with gift shops, a pro shop even a food stand structured like a subway car advertising Sbarro & Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs. From the 107th floor, visitors took an escalator to the 110th floor to experience breath taking views of all of Manhattan.
A view from the 110th floor of the World Trade Center South Tower was unlike any other with sights of Rockefeller Center, the Met Life Building, the Citigroup Center the Chrysler Building & the Empire State Building. Although there was an anti-suicide fence built to protect patrons from falling or jumping, it did not obstruct the observatory's spectacular views.
BEWARE: Tickets without their stubs or just the stubs are worth a fraction of the value of the same full complete ticket. WTC COLLECTIBLES HISTORY INFORMATION: Our uncle had a Manhattan store & passed away on 9/11. His family requested us to help out the store owners who could not meet bills due.We donated as much as we could & waited to sell the vintage World Trade Center collectibles a decade later. These were beautiful WTC Twin Tower keepsakes from before 9/11. Incredible memorabilia that so many visitors & collectors loved.
So before these collectibles were discontinued, we obtained what we could from the companies that provided the WTC gift shops. We stored them for 10 years & decided that on the tenth memorial of the 9/11 WTC we would present them once again. Every WTC collectible we are offering is a beautiful vintage Pre 9/11 WTC Twin Tower Treasure. As collectors ourselves, we hope you'll love & treasure this collection as we do.
