Two adult admission tickets to the World Trade Center Observation Deck. The front features an image of the Twin Towers and text: "Adult | World Trade Center Observation Deck." The back of the tickets includes printed text: "Management reserves the right to revoke the license granted by this ticket by refunding purchase price."
At 1,377 feet, the South Tower Observation Deck’s outdoor viewing platform was the highest in the world. On a clear day, one could see for 45 miles in each direction from the Observation Deck. On average, the Observation Deck attracted 1.8 million visitors per year. From the opening day of the Observation Deck in December 1975, through close of business the night of September 10, 2001, approximately 46,350,000 visitors experienced the views from the top of the South Tower.
