New York is a true leader in the number of spectacular skyscrapers, and a special place among its many landmarks belongs to the Freedom Tower. This luxury skyscraper with a sparkling glass facade is part of the World Trade Center. It was opened on May 10, 2013. Height of a skyscraper is 541 meters, so it’s the highest not only in the United States, but also in the Western Hemisphere.
The building is very unusual, it resembles a slightly tilted cube with cut edges. The building seems to be slowly rotated due to its unusual shape. Facade of the skyscraper is decorated with special glass prisms of various thickness; reflective panels shine like a huge crystal. Skyscraper was built on the site of the Twin Towers destroyed September 2001. It’s home to many offices and business centers.
The height of the building is 541 meters. The main element of the Freedom Tower aimed at tourists is an observation deck, which is equipped at an altitude of 417 meters. The tower's name, as well as its height, is very symbolic. Freedom Tower is directed towards the sky at exactly 1776 feet, as in 1776 Declaration of Independence of the United States took place. Locals believed it to be doubtful to erect another grandiose skyscraper on the scene of 2001. In memory of past events, many townspeople call the spectacular skyscraper ‘Tower of Terror.’ Next - Taipei 101
