Upon entering Rockefeller Center, pass through security and ride up to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck, open 365 days a year.
The view is as dramatic a sight as anyone can get in New York City. Day or night, the three floors of indoor and outdoor decks serve to impress. Take in the scenery from a comfortable seat or use binoculars for unobstructed views through glass panels on the 67th and 69th floors and in the open air observatory on the 70th floor. On all three levels, have a photo taken by a Kodak pro and pick it up on the way out.
