NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh), George Clooney and Anderson Cooper are helping to open the new observatory at One World Trade Center.

De Blasio, Clooney and Cooper are scheduled to be on "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday as the show offers a look at the 102nd-floor space, which opens to the public May 29.

The show will be hosted by Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

The 104-story skyscraper is the tallest in the United States. It's 1,776 feet tall. It opened late last year.

"CBS This Morning" executive producer Chris Licht says the observatory "is a true symbol of how far New York City has come since Sept. 11."
