Top of the Rock

Am I best booking tickets online in advance of my visit in October? I'm concerned if I do, that the weather conditions may not be good on the day/time I select. My hotel is quite handily placed so I would probably choose to make a reservation for a morning slot. Any advice please.

You don't need to prebook TOTR

There's a site with 3 dollar discount coupons, but I can't find it right now. When I do, I'll post the link, or maybe someone else will beat me to it ^^

We were just there last week. The weather thing was also a concern because we wanted to go up on top around dusk so that we could watch the sunset and the lighting of the City. We finally decided which night we were going, stopped by about 10am after visiting the Today Show site and bought tics. for 8pm. Then we jumped a Subway to Little Italy for the day, ate at Lombrdi's (the best pizza). We got back to the Rock at about 7:15p and jumped on the elevator. The lines in the morning and also in the evening we very short. Had a great time up there for a couple of hours seeing the City in the day and also at nighttime.

Did a reservation one day in advance but only because of the discount.

From the time I entered the TOTR reception to reaching the top took me barely 5mins.

It rained awhile and then the sun came out, resulting in a beautiful double-rainbow. be sure to go to the top-most level, the one without the Plexi-glas.

We are heading there later this week and we're hoping to be up there for the fireworks on the 4th. We bought an Explorer Pass for 3 venues and will use one of them for TOTR. Good value!
