ONCE YOU'VE ARRIVED

During our reimagining, to get to the Observatory you may either make your way to the main lobby on the fourth floor of Columbia Center via the escalators from the 1st floor Atrium off of 4th Avenue, or use the entrance at 701 5th Avenue. Find the elevator bank labeled 37-76 and take the elevator to the Sky Lobby on the 40th floor. As you exit the elevator an automated voice will tell you which direction to turn. Proceed to the elevators that are labeled "66-76". Once in the elevator press "73" and you will arrive at the tallest public view in the west in seconds!

*except for some holidays and private events.  Check the website for current hours.
