An overview of the first floor of the Summit experience
Let's start at tour at the beginning; after ascending from a lobby connected to Grand Central Station, you enter this hallway, which has a cool pulsating light show
Then you enter the main space on the first floor, which is two stories high and has mirrors everywhere
Lots of selfie possibilities!
The walls and floors all reflect amazing views of the city
Looking through the glass downtown
There are views in all four directions; this is looking east down 42nd Street
As you leave the main roof, you enter a lobby with views to the north, which will eventually have a Yayoi Kusama installation.
Up one floor are the balconies overlooking the main room.
A view East along the balconies on the second floor.

There are two cutaway tubes connecting the first two floors

In the lobby on the second floor is a glass balcony where you can stand over the city
It's actually quite scary looking down at Madison!

On the third floor there's an elevator that takes you even higher
The elevator has another glass bottom!
