A triumphant symbol of New York's resilience, One World Trade Center has reshaped the city's skyline. The tower stands 1,776 feet tall—in honor of the year the Declaration of Independence was signed—making it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. A viewing space on the three-story observation deck is accessible from the 100th floor (for an admission fee); there are also three cafés and restaurants at the top of the building that are open to the public. Outside, visitors can pay their respects to those who lost their lives during both the September 11 attack and 1993 bombing that occurred at the site. Two reflecting pools lie in the footprint of the Twin Towers and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. Names of each person who passed away in both attacks are etched into the panels lining the pools.
