These new time slots allow guests to immerse themselves in AIR at NIGHT, a one-of-a-kind evening sound and light show designed by artist Kenzo Digital. As the lights of the city illuminate, AIR at NIGHT transforms the space into a beacon of energy, color and illusion and includes AFFINITY, an interactive room filled with hundreds of reflective orbs and UNITY, where visitors become part of the experience itself with their portraits transformed into projected clouds.

Thrill seekers will be able to experience LEVITATION, sky boxes that allow guests to step out from the envelope of the building secure on transparent glass 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue and ASCENTthe all-glass elevators with transparent glass floors that travel up the exterior of the building to more than 1,200 feet (364 meters), nesting at the highest viewing point in midtown Manhattan.

After taking it all in, guests can relax in APRÈS and SUMMIT TERRACE, a sky-high cafe and lounge serving elevated light fare and innovative cocktails curated by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events.

“I am overjoyed by the incredible response to SUMMIT One Vanderbilt from New Yorkers and visitors to NYC. To avoid overcrowding and ensure the best possible experience for all of our guests this season, we will continue to reduce full capacity limits and expand our hours and days to welcome more visitors. There is no place like New York during the holidays, and no better place to enjoy the lights and festivity than from above,” said Marc Holliday, Chairman and CEO of SL Green.

“It’s remarkable how different AIR can feel at different times of day and in different weather,” said Kenzo Digital. “This distinction is especially apparent between day and night; you really have to experience both to get the full scope of the story.”
