Do this because
  • Explore three levels of mind-bending multi-sensory immersive experiences set atop the tallest commercial skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan
  • Enjoy spectacular 360 views of New York City and beyond on all 3 floors of SUMMIT, including close ups views of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler building
  • SUMMIT One Vanderbilt blends elements of art and technology, taking the concept of an “observation deck” to entirely new heights
What to expect

Your journey at the top of One Vanderbilt starts in Transcendence, part of AIR, a story-driven immersive experience designed by Kenzo Digital, mixing transparency and reflectivity to create the illusion of boundless space! Enjoy a beautiful art installation in Reflect: on display in the most famous art galleries across the world, “CLOUDS” is comprised of stainless-steel cloud-like shapes, designed by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

Your experience then evolves and becomes interactive and playful in Affinity where you are invited to connect physically to the space by playing with highly reflective orbs floating around the room. Then it’s time for a thrilling experience at Levitation; the skyboxes allow you to step out from the envelope of the building and stand on transparent glass 1,070 feet (325 meters) above Madison Avenue, with the hustle and bustle of city streets directly beneath you.

In Unity, you are invited to become part of the space itself – your 3D face capture transformed into a cloud in a mesmerizing, infinite cloudscape display on a giant screen. On the last floor of SUMMIT, you’ll find the sky-high lounge and café Après, featuring bespoke light fare and an innovative cocktail program curated by Danny Meyer’s Union SquareEvents. The SUMMIT Terrace wraps around the south and west sides of One Vanderbilt and is the perfect open-air viewing spot to take in the incredible views for up to 80 miles while toasting your experience.
