4 tips for visiting the SUMMIT One Vanderbilt

Be curiousThe entire exhibition is interactive. Be open and try everything to experience the exhibition with all your senses.

Use the external elevatorThe external elevator Ascent is the world's highest situated glass elevator. It is located on the 93rd floor and takes you 12 floors up to the highest viewpoint of One Vanderbilt. Do not miss this unique opportunity!
Bring sunglassesEven if it might sound strange: Take your sunglasses with you! The reflective materials and glass of the exhibition multiply the sunlight and can quickly become uncomfortable for sensitive people.
Wear pantsSince the exhibition often features reflective floors or even glass floors, you should avoid skirts or dresses during your visit. Opt for pants or shorts instead to avoid any uncomfortable surprises and to be able to enjoy your visit.

Expand your horizons

SUMMIT One Vanderbilt offers a unique exhibition that transcends the limits of space and perception. This immersive, interactive art installation of mirror rooms opens up a whole new perspective on the city and perhaps on yourself as well.

Air: Transcendence 1

Start your journey through the Air exhibition at SUMMIT One Vanderbilt in the first exhibition room Transcendence 1. This room is a fascinating mirror room with huge windows that present the city skyline and the Empire State Building in the foreground. Reflective surfaces reflect in these windows.


After leaving Transcendence 1, you enter the next room Reflect. This room was conceived as a place where you can meditate and find yourself. Admire the art installation Cloud by the renowned artist Yayoi Kusama, which was placed on the floor. Enjoy the silence and let this room calm your senses.

Air: Affinity

You continue your journey in the next room Affinity. Silver shapes float through the air creating a very special atmosphere. You can interact with the shapes and let your imagination run free. Use the interplay of mirror floors and ceilings for your unique souvenir photo!

Air: Transcendence 2

Transcendence 2 is the second level of the mirror room and thus an extension of Transcendence 1. Experience the feeling of a ‘boundless space’ as you look down on Transcendence 1. The room challenges all your senses and offers you a unique experience. Look through the glass openings in the floor and expand your horizon.


After sharpening your senses and calming your mind, the next attraction waits for you at SUMMIT One Vanderbilt: Levitation. This installation consists of two completely glass cabins that hang 335m (1,100ft) above street level, on Madison Avenue. Here you can overcome your fears and enjoy a spectacular view from a unique perspective.

Air: Unity

The last part of your journey brings you to Unity. Scan your bracelet before you enter the room and become part of the installation. Find yourself in the clouds and try to take a photo with yourself!
