In my visit to New York City I went to One World Trade Center which is also known as Freedom Tower. This post consists of some pictures of One World Trade Center. By all means if you ever have a chance to visit please go. One World Trade is amazing to spend time in.
“The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world.”

Freedom Tower or One World Trade Center at dusk
Freedom Tower is officially known as One World Trade Center. Construction start on the 94 floor skyscraper on 2006 and completed in 2014. The building is 1776 feet high and is the tallest in the United States. The views from the building are impressive. And yes when I was up top I could feel the building move slightly. There is a cafe and gift shop at the top of the building also. Below are some pictures that I took when I was visiting One World Trade.

You can actually watch the video they show in this YouTube clip.
