This is well worth the journey. We went on a cloudy morning. It was a bit foggy too. They warned us before we purchased our tickets. It was still terrific. Also there was a magazine photo shoot going on. That was interesting. The view was...More

We enjoyed the views from the top and great opportunity to take photos from every angle. Our tickets were bought on a day where the visibility was zero. Luckily the staff was kind enough to reschedule our visit to another day. Do check the weather...More

As expected, the view was amazing - a bit different from each of the 3 observation decks. We had already seen the skyline during sunset, so decided to go before lunchtime. We could see for miles. You don't realize how tiny the SOL is compared...More

The observation deck was a great experience. You are high enough up to see distances while still low enough to see the buildings close by. I would recommend getting tickets on-line for an early time if possible. The morning we went it was not windy....More

Attended on a Tuesday at 4.30pm, small queue so limited hold ups. Entry was straight forward with New York passes then through the queuing system to the elevators. A fast ear popping ride to the top. An escalator ride to the observation deck then steps...More

Visited early on a Sunday morning, no queues and we were up to the top very quick. The views were breathtaking , highly recommend this attraction in NY. Would have loved to come back at night to see the views by night.

We went to the Empire State Building on our first day of New York, and here on our last. This by far offered the best views of the city, and as a lover of heights I was very excited to be able to go all...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of

Response from RockefellerCenter | Property representative |
Hello! Yes, you may certainly move between decks during your visit.
1. What are the highlights of each floor (67th, 69th, & 70th)? 2. Is the 70th floor open air (similar to the 86th floor of ESB)? 3. Do you recommend Top of the Rock, the Empire State Building, or both?* 4. Any tips? Thanks! Inge C. * Planning to go to... Top of the Rock - 7:45pm, Thursday, June 29th, 2017 Empire State Building - 7:45pm, Tuesday, June 27th, 2017 OR at night after TotR

Definitely go to both if you haven't been before. Rock gives you a great picture of the Empire State. Both are open air. Try Rock in the day and Empire at night. Don't forget the new One World Observatory as well. Tallest... More
