There is something exhilarating about standing at the edge of a skyscraper's observation deck and staring out...and down.  Travel + Leisure realizes this, which is probably why they came up with a list of "The World's Most Jaw-dropping Skyscraper Observation Decks," and no surprise, two of them are in New York City.

The list includes buildings in cities all over the world, including Dubai, London, Paris, and Shanghai, but there are only two cities with more than one skyscraper on the list --- Chicago and New York City.

The first spot in NYC is a classic (and maybe the most famous skyscraper in the world), the Empire State Building.  Travel + Leisure says "Hang on tight, the main observatory deck, located on the 86th floor, is New York’s highest open-air observatory, and it can get pretty windy up there. Head up even further, to the 102nd floor, and you’ll realize why New York City is one of the best of them all."

New York City's second spot on the list is One World Trade Center.  A quick 47 second elevator ride will take you up to the 102nd floor, where you'll find an amazing view of Manhattan and beyond.
