The New York Times has a video of what tourists can expect to see when they shoot up in the new elevators in the World Trade Center.
The elevator walls of the new tower will show a realistic rendering and time lapse video of the growth and development of downtown Manhattan from a small hamlet to a booming metropolis.
Onenoticeableguest appearance is the former south tower of the former Twin Towers, a ghostly reminder of what once stood.

"From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on three walls of the elevator cabs, as if one were witnessing 515 years of history unfolding at the tip of Manhattan Island.

For less than four seconds (roughly proportional to the time the twin towers stood), a jarringly familiar pinstripe facade will loom into view on one wall of the cab. Then, in a quick dissolve, it will evanesce."
Visitors will be able to ride the elevator and see the video when One World Trade Center's observation deck opens May of this year.
