From Wednesday to Monday, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt opens at 9 am and closes at midnight.
The New York attraction remains closed on Tuesdays.
The last entry is at 10.30 pm – 90 minutes before the closing.
Summit One Vanderbilt tickets are timed.
While booking their tickets, guests must select a preferred time and date for a visit, which is then indicated on the ticket.
You must arrive at your scheduled time on the day of the visit.
Since SUMMIT Observatory operates at full capacity, and you might not be able to get in if you arrive more than 20 minutes late.
If you miss your time slot, you can try to reschedule your visit – which is subject to availability, a re-scheduling fee, and a possible ticket price difference.
Best time to visit
If you want to avoid the crowd, the best time to visit SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is as soon as they open at 9 am.
For the best views from the New York observatory, the best time to visit Summit One Vanderbilt is one hour before sunset.
If you time it well, you can see the city’s skyline in daylight and then witness the colorful visual treat of the sun setting over the city.
If you stay long enough, you can also enjoy the city lights come up as it gets dark.
