Tourists Advised Against Wearing Skirts At New Attraction To Avoid “Unwanted Exposure”
Visitors to an attraction in New York have been advised against wearing skirts.
It’s called The Summit One Vanderbilt and it opened for the public on October 21. The 1401ft tower houses three different exhibits that showcase the pinnacle of what New York has to offer, including Ascent, the largest exterior glass-floor elevators on the globe, taking visitors to the highest point in Midtown. In addition, there is Levitation, featuring glass ledges 1,063ft high.

The attraction also comes with certain guidelines for people to follow.
The website reads:
“Due to the nature of the space and presence of reflective and transparent flooring materials, we recommend wearing pants, shorts, or tights to enjoy the full SUMMIT experience.”
“For guests uncomfortable walking on reflective surfaces, we do offer a non-reflective privacy path throughout the space.”

On offer are also complimentary black shorts for people who did not familiarise themselves with the advisory, as per USA Today.
Chairman and CEO of Summit’s developer SL Green, Marc Holliday, described the site as “awe-inspiring, magical and needs to be experienced to be understood… it’s a special, thrilling place that New Yorkers and travelers from across the country and the world will want to visit time and time again.”
