The John Hancock Tower in the distance is dwarfed in this view from Prudential Tower's private roof deck. The Prudential Tower is said to have the highest public vantage point of the city, the Prudential Skywalk, an observation deck on the 50th floor. The Skywalk is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., except for occasional private functions. Tickets are $11 for adults, $7.50 for children under 12, and $9 for seniors and students with college ID.
