Whoa whoa whoa, I thought that observation deck wasn't open to the public anymore! Has that changed since I was last in New York?

I am so excited about going to New York tomorrow! My favorite Uncle lives right across the street from the Beekman at Southbridge Towers - you see the buildings in nearly every picture - the brown ones with the white horizontal stripes. The Beekman is really much nicer in person, the pictures don't do it justice ... however Uncle complains it now blocks his view of the Woolworth (but he still has a view from his terrace of the ESB, the Chrysler, MetLife, and the nearby Municipal Building.)

as far as i know it's still closed for the public. from wiki:

Quote:
The building features an open air platform with an enclosed glass observatory above it on the 66th Floor, offering a view of downtown from any building. This observatory, which was once public, is now accessible only to executives and employees of AIG.
EDIT: the 1WTC observatory will offer great a view of lower manhattan when finished. for now, only the ESB and top of the rock are open for the public (chrysler is closed !).

Wow this building seemed to put itself together. Lower Manhatten is the place to be with all types of scrapers and supertalls coming together! Awesome pics!
