Okay, so you've already succumbed to paying $32 to ascend New York City's tallest building and take in the views from One World Observatory, which officially opens to the public next Friday—now you want to commemorate the occasion with a trinket from the gift shop. Better keep your wallet open: Gothamist found some absurd price tags at a pre-opening visit, the highest of which went all the way off to $200 for a quarter-zip pullover. A quarter-zip pullover.
Are there other ridiculously-priced souvenir items available? Of course there are. Try on the $175 polo shirt for size, or grab an $80 throw blanket to toss over that chair you dragged in from the curb. (Or you could take an Instagram picture that'll last on the Internet forever and ever.)
