The Top of the Rock gives great views of the entire panorama of NYC. When purchasing your ticket, I would recommend paying a few dollars more, and get the ticket that allows TWO visits in the same day. Go up during the daytime for pictures,...More

There are great views from Top of the Rock, including a clear look at the Empire State Building. You can choose from several levels as well as indoor and outdoor viewing areas.

This is a must see when visiting NYC! Had to wait an hour or so for a place, but it was worth it. Amazing city views, especially at night time. Don't dare to miss.

Historical building overlooking a great city. Went up the 30 Rockefeller building early afternoon on a weekday. Wasn't that busy and took some great photos. Wife didn't want to go up and afterwards she enjoyed it more than me.

I've been up the Empire State but the crowds, queue lengths, security and very limited space at the top wouldn't make me return. This had similar views (better view of Central Park and you can see the Empire State itself), has large viewing areas over...More

Definitely worth going up as you get to see The Empire State Building. Views all around are fantastic! Sunset to dark are the best time to go up. Queuing can take a while so plan in advance.

Definitely go to both if you haven't been before. Rock gives you a great picture of the Empire State. Both are open air. Try Rock in the day and Empire at night. Don't forget the new One World Observatory as well. Tallest... More

I'm interested in visiting this attraction next Tuesday, and was wondering how long a typical wait would be with your ticket bought in advance online? Or if there are certain times you recommended that aren't as busy. Thanks!
