Much better view and having the opportunity to see the Central Park and the Empire State Building. There are also less people compared to the Empire State Building.

The obligatory photo in the queue on the way up always annoys me. Managed to duck it this time.
Stunning views of Empire State one direction, Central park the other.

Soooo my boyfriend and I almost skipped the Empire State Building to do Top of the Rock after reading a lot of negative reviews on Trip Advisor but decided against it since it was our first time in NYC (ESB just seems like something you have to do as a first timer). We ended up doing both Top of the Rock and ESB instead (we bought the City Pass booklet, which provides guests with access to both locations). We actually found that Top of the Rock was WAY busier and we faced a much longer wait there than on both of our trips to the ESB (City Pass gives you same day access day and night). Maybe we hit it on an off night, but we also found it much harder to take pictures/move around on the top deck (which is also the only deck of the three observation areas offered by Top of the Rock that isn't surrounded in plexi-glass). Bottom line: if I had to choose, I'd definitely go Empire State Building over Top of the Rock.
