View Full Version : Did you ever get to go up to Windows of the World?

Hello, I'm just curious. Who here got to go up to Windows of the World before 9/11? It was the restaurant on top of each of the towers. Or at least one of them.

I went up once but don't really remember it.

The last time I went up there for lunch was in August 2001. It was a restaurant and bar. On a clear day, the view was awesome. I forget which tower it was in...I wanna say the north tower, but I'm not entirely sure.

I wish I had, but unfortunately not. I was on the roof a few times when I was little, I need to find the pictures. :(

That is where I proposed to my wife. It was expensive, but well worth it! It was in the opposite tower as the observation deck.

I had dinner up there quite a few times. A remarkable restaurant, that is still sorely missed.

I hate to say that I never made it up in the Towers, with all the times I've been into the city. Back in May 2001, I was downtown for a meeting, and afterwards thought about heading there, since it was a nice day and I didn't have anything pressing to do. Instead I decided to head home. Since I was attending these meetings every couple of months, I thought I would visit the Towers my next time in, thinking to myself "it's not like they're going anywhere" (I swear to God!) Our next meeting was scheduled for September 13. Obviously, I never got there.

I took my former g/f there for dinner around '99. The food was beyond gourmet and the looking at NYC at night from that height was breathtaking. In fact the only time/s I have seen a better view is during my return flights to JFK from 15,000+ ft at night.. Then again the LGA approach over the Hudson and City Island at night ain't so bad either.

Been up there a few times to eat, great restaurant, even greater views. The last time I was up there, was in 1998 for my 13th b'day. I was supposed to go to a Bar'Mitzvah there a few weeks after the attacks...
