I would suggest doing one high rise, either this or Empire State bldg, see no need to do both but a must is the new Freedom Tower. Enjoy our tour and trip to the top. So much history in this building.

We did this on a Tuesday, right before sunset. The view is amazing. It wasn't over crowded, I highly recommend!

I'm lucky enough to have friends who I think have a better view than this. It's a lot of money and you really don't need to spend a lot of time up there.

Great views from top of the deck. Definitely a must go! Went there at night, the views were breathtaking. Heard the views are better during a clear day as you can see the city end to end from the deck. It was mostly rainy and...More
