    The view from the observatory on the Freedom Tower is fairly similar.

    They even have a section with one of those glass floors so you can look straight down onto West Street.

    Freaked me out a bit, but the little kids were rolling around on it without a care in the world.

    its basically the same location. i just can't stand the pit area after spending so much time walking among the tourists and assholes selling souvenir t-shirts the first year after; there is something about turning a cemetery into a tourist attraction that i find distasteful. I moved my office out of the area a few years ago and my indigestion vanished.
