New observation deck offers sky-high views of Philly [photos]

    The elevator ride to One Liberty Observation Deck takes 75 seconds. The change of altitude is such that it might make your ears pop.

    The space on the 57th floor of Philadelphia’s second tallest building provides 360 degree views of the city and beyond. It can accommodate up to 275 people and costs $19 for adults, $14 for children under 12.

    The attraction opens to the public on Saturday, Nov. 28 and General Manager Evan Evans said he expects half a million people will visit each year.
