Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York

    What to Expect
    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.

    As a first time visitor to NYC, the Top Of The Rock was obviously on the list of things to do. Firstly, the queues when we went - evening on a midweek August evening were fairly busy, and having arrived around 7.15 hoping to get up top over sunset we found that the earliest

    Really enjoyed this and you didn't need to spend all day in line waiting to get up to the observatory, the top has an amazing view and its extra nice as there is no glass or barriers in front of you so you really can take amazing pictures

    I found all the carry on to get up there was annoying. I expect security but then having to queue for a photo, then stand in the hallway waiting to see a film and all the subterfuge of blinds so you couldn’t see out was a bit weird. Then we had the hard sell of the tablet

    Well worth a trip to see the great views a lot of history behind this building. I prefer this to the Empire State Building.
