NEW YORK - The 100th-floor observation deck of the Freedom Tower was opened to the media for a sneak peak Tuesday.

The attraction dubbed the One World Observatory isn't scheduled to open until 2015, but invitees to a special event were able to view nearly all of Manhattan, the Hudson River and many New Jersey communities.

The Observatory will occupy the tower's 100th to 102nd floors, and a high-speed elevator will take visitors there.

Legends CEO David Checketts says, "Inside the elevator ride, which is 60 seconds, you'll see how New York City grew up through the ages."

Ticket prices for the observation deck have not been announced.
