PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia’s newest attraction is also the city’s tallest. At 57 floors up and 883 feet above street level, the One Liberty Observation Deck is truly a look at Philly from the top.
“It’s powerful,” General Manager Evan Evans says.
With the 360-degree unobstructed view, the sky-high attraction is just about ready for its debut.
Eyewitness News got a tour before the November 28th grand opening.
New signs inside the Shops at Liberty Place point visitors in the right direction. The entrance to the attraction is on the second floor where visitors will find a statue of Ben Franklin’s feet and legs.
After a 75 second express elevator ride to the top, visitors are then greeted by the statue’s head.
“You can walk around the entire deck,” Evans describes. “The view of City Hall is spectacular. You can see all the way to Trenton on a clear day. We really wanted to give visitors a taste of what Philly is all about.”
The deck does just that with interactive touch screens and exhibits dedicated to Philly sports, arts and culture.
The observation deck opens to the public on November 28th at 10 a.m. The deck will then be open from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day of the year.
Tickets for adults cost $19, children ages 3 to 11 cost $14.
