*Manhattan’s newest attraction is a sky-high observation deck with mirrored floors known as the Summit.
As reported by The New York Post, a new dress code has been introduced “to spare the blushes of visitors wanting to preserve their modesty,” the outlet writes.
Here’s more from the report:
The Post stopped by the tourist magnet on its opening day to investigate rumors about the “upskirting” headache caused by the venue’s “immersive art experience” known as “Air.” Quoted in a press release, its creator Kenzo Digital, who works incognito like famed guerilla artist Banksy, said the installation “shares the intoxicating sense of aspiration and inspiration that New York gives … A beacon of possibility that pays tribute to all that New York is, can be, will be.”
Per the report, the giant mirrors leave little to the imagination when you’re wearing a skirt or dress.

Luckily, the management of Summit provides a free pair of black shorts upon request. The website suggests visitors wear pants, shorts or tights.
There’s also a note in the small print saying: “Guests who are concerned about any unwanted exposure as a result of the mirrored floors and ceilings are responsible for dressing in a manner to avoid such exposure.”
The Summit is located atop the 1,400-foot-tall Midtown skyscraper One Vanderbilt, with tickets ranging from $39 and $73.
