A New Manhattan attraction is set to open its glass doors to thrill-seekers next October and lift them up to 1,210 ft. above Madison Avenue.

The all-glass, transparent elevator Ascent is part of a $3.3 billion development plan “in the crown of One Vanderbilt.”

    “With the city’s tourism well positioned to continue to rebound, Summit One Vanderbilt comes at an ideal time to offer a reimagined observation deck experience paired with a truly unique artistic expression,” he added.
