The Summit One Vanderbilt attraction in New York City wants visitors to enjoy the all its glass ceilings, glass floors and glass walls but there’s one caveat – don’t wear a skirt.

The reflective flooring inside the building can lead to “unwanted exposure” for guests wearing skirts or dresses, the attraction’s website says. USA TODAY was informed by a spokesperson from Summit One Vanderbilt that skirts and dresses are not penalized. 

It is situated inside the new tower, 1,401 feet tall, and was opened by Summit One Vanderbilt. It includes three exhibits on three different floors; the “Air” exhibit features skyline views and reflective, mirrored floors.

“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,” read the suggestion on the website.

The Summit told USA TODAY it does offer black shorts for those who had not read the advisory at no cost. Black shorts are complimentary for guests who ask.

The creator of the Summit, Kenzo Digital, said the Air exhibit was created to “awaken” visitors’ senses and will transform their “relation to physical space.”

“We’ve created a work that brings innovative storytelling to the best view in New York City – taking the Summit observation deck canvas and elevating it into a transcendent and euphoric experience,” Kenzo Digital’s website read.
