The elevators that take you to the observatory at the new World Trade Center won't just take you to the top, they'll take you on a history lesson as well. You'll definitely want to watch this twice to fully appreciate it.

The observatory elevators are walled with HD monitors that make you think you're looking through windows. As you ascend, you're treated to a panoramic view of New York City. It all starts by showing you what the area looked like in the 1500's. While you continue your way to the top, your view time lapses all the way to present day, the whole time letting you watch the city change as time has rolled on for over 500 years!
