One Vanderbilt

One Vanderbilt, the brand-new New York City attraction has suggested visitors an unusual dress code- no skirts. The venue is a 93-story skyscraper in New York City’s midtown, located on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue. While most of the building is occupied as office space, a brand-new observation deck called SUMMIT One Vanderbilt takes up floors 91 through 93.

This attraction is quite different from other NYC observation decks like the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, One World Observatory, or Edge NYC. SUMMIT is a three-story attraction made mostly of glass and mirrors. The decks are designed so that visitors can look up and see others floating above them.

Therefore, the no skirts rule has been mentioned for the benefit of visitors. The SUMMIT has mentioned that guests who are concerned about unwanted exposure as a result of the mirrored floors and ceilings are responsible for dressing in a manner to avoid such exposure. Although pants are not required, they are suggested for more modest visitors. Those who come in kilts or dresses and are unaware of other visitors’ potential vantage points can request a free pair of stretchy black shorts upon arrival. There is also a “non-reflective privacy path throughout the space” for guests who feel uncomfortable walking over reflective surfaces
