Seen & Heard: See the World Trade Center Observatory for Free

••• State senator Daniel Squadron’s office called to say that this Tuesday’s full meeting of Community Board 1 will be at the One World Observatory inside 1 World Trade Center—which means you can get inside for free. Waiting to hear about what time and whether it’s an RSVP situation. UPDATE from Squadron’s office: “Senator Squadron requested CB1 be allowed to have a public meeting in the observatory at 1WTC, and Legends (operator) agreed for the CB’s January meeting next Tuesday at 6 p.m. Members of the public will sign in at security desk and be allowed up as space permits. There is room for approx 125 people including board members and electeds/staff, but the board does not anticipate space problems. Entrance is on West near Vesey, and photo ID will be required. Attendees will have to verify that they live in CB1.”
