We did not book so had to buy our tickets then come back in 90 mins. This is a well oiled process and everyone is moved through to the super fast lifts in quick time - we probably had to wait about 10 mins. The views are 360 degrees and gives very one the shane for views and photos.

I choose this building as it allows a view of Central Park and Lower Manhattan, where the Empire State building does not.

Don't visit NYC and not go here... the views are fabulous and the whole experience designed to be immersive, thought provoking and highly enjoyable. Add to the experience by grabbing some fizz at the bar at the top!

Amazing views, and different decking levels you can view the skyline from, friendly staff and quick and easy security checks, enjoyed this more than viewing the skyline from the empire state building.

Quick and efficient way to get the best skyline view of NYC. Purchased tickets online for 730, but we arrived earlier than anticipated and we were allowed to go on up. Plenty of time to linger and take pictures.

It is not the highest one in NYC but it is very nice especially in the evening when you see all the lovely lights of New York. It is open until midnight so you can enjoy it for the end of the day.

Had booked a time to go up just before sunset. Very smooth process getting up with not much waiting time and very friendly and helpful staff. Great to have the Empire State Building in view as well. Highly recommend going up to see the city during sunset and with all the lights turning on.

Took my mom, son and cousins to the Top of The Rock at night. This was my second visit and just as awesome as I remember! Don't get me wrong, I love the Empire State Building for the history but I honestly like the Top of the Rock even better! The views are more unobstructed and honestly I like being... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, 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 store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
