This is a really cool concept! Next month in New York City is when the observation deck on the new 1 World Trade Centre opens to the public. Visitors who take the elevator will be treated to an absolutely stunning time lapse panorama view that visually depicts the over 500 years of history that occurred on Manhattan Island. The video which accompanies you as you rise through the tower depicts the arrival of the Dutch, the British Colonial era, and the rise of New York city from the late 1890’s to current day.

Notably the events of September 11th 2001 have been included in this video, even though there was a significant amount of emotional reactions, the planners thought it was a crucial aspect of New York history.

Watch the video and enjoy!
