We don’t have time machine DeLoreans or magical phone box TARDIS contraptions flying about, but we will soon have the Sky Pods at One World Trade Center. And that’s enough.

The New York Times showed a video highlighting innovations at the building that will open an observation deck to the public on May 29.

The wonderment will start well before you gaze upon an immense and bustling city below, because the elevators promise to take you back in time when the budding skyline was in its infancy.

From there, you will enjoy a magical story that ends with your current status as one of many who will visit the 100th floor and above:

The NY Times states, “The elevators to the observatory atop 1 World Trade Center show an animated time lapse that recreates the development of New York City’s skyline, from the 1500s to today.”

TravelPulse’s Donald Wood previously regaled you with the details of the upcoming opening for what will be New York’s premier observation deck.

The summer will undoubtedly be marked by scores of tourists taking a ride up in these elevators.

Of course, there will be a palpable excitement in the Sky Pod as the anticipation of a gorgeous view of the city is met with one of the coolest elevator innovations we have seen.

Officials are pulling out all the stops for an inviting and captivating trip to New York’s sky. It’s fitting that they take you back to where it all began in the grandest manner possible.
