The view from the top is truly amazing! There are three observation decks available. We decided to go here in the day time and the Empire State Building in the night. Loved both views!

We went to the top of the Rock and had great views of NY city and central park. The staff at the lifts and exits were very polite and helpful. Not too much queing.

We went to the Top of the Rock in the afternoon on a clear day and the views were fantastic. We didn't have to queue and after we had a coffee and a sit down in the food court on the lower levels. Well worth the ticket price.

The Top of the Rock , while it may be at the top of a building that has worn mamny names, offers a classic view of Manhattan and the other boroughs. It all offers an unusual view of St. Patricks Cathedral, 5th Avenue, and Central Park. If you want to view New York from one single place, the Top of the Rock is that place. Because you are located in mid-town on the unroofed peak of a very tall building, you enjoy a panorama that you will not get from the Empire State Bldg or Trade Center. At christmas time, you get a totally-unfettered view of the tree at Rochefeller Center and the ice rink. Don't miss it!

Buy your ticket online or in the Top Of The Rock shop ( there are self-service machines to make it quick and easy) and then queue for the mega-fast lift to the observation decks. The view is staggering and you seem to be able to stay up there for as long as you like. The only thing I didn't like was the attempt to get everyone in the queue to pose for a photo in front of a picture of the view! I mean why bother??
