Can a visit to a thoughtfully designed attraction transform the way you think about a city? Yes, according to Evan Dodd, a recent SUMMIT One Vanderbilt guest.
As a first-time visitor to New York City, Evan wasn’t used to the skyscrapers and bustling ambiance. But after taking in the mesmerizing view from SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, he gained a new perspective of New York: “[SUMMIT] truly altered the way I thought about NYC. When you see the city from SUMMIT, it has a powerful energy that is hard to describe.”
There are multiple reasons for this. The first is the way SUMMIT’s spaces have been arranged and maintained. They’re not just meant to show you the surrounding cityscape and picturesque horizon. The difference between SUMMIT and other observation decks is that our spaces are meant to become part of your overall feeling and memory of NYC. As you stand in “Air,” the mind-bending, multistory art installation designed by Kenzo Digital, you’re introduced to a novel adventure that’s not available at any other observatory point in the city.
Inside SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, you can interact with art installations by Kenzo Digital and Yayoi Kusama, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in one of New York City’s most unique experiences. The powerful pull of both the sprawling city below and the playful artwork inside is refreshing and original.
Whether you live in Manhattan or you’ve only seen it in movies, nothing can prepare you for the in-person experience at SUMMIT One Vanderbilt.
Our recent guest may have been new to New York, but it doesn’t matter if you’ve visited NYC once or (practically) one million times. You can still indulge in many “firsts,” courtesy of SUMMIT One Vanderbilt.
What are some of the new things you can expect when you take the ride up 1,100 feet into the clouds?
If you’ve been thinking about visiting New York City, now is the time to purchase tickets to SUMMIT One Vanderbilt. When you do, you’ll be glad you made the decision. Just ask Evan, who concluded his review by noting: “The SUMMIT experience lets you connect to NYC and its energy from a totally new level.”
