Top of the rock has the best view over Manhattan if you ask me. Last time I went to NYC i went there during the morning and this time in the evening. Both great views! Went there around 7-8 pm and there wasn’t any que.

Went at 8:00 pm so we could see the skyline at night!! It was one of favorite places we visited. Beautiful sky!! At that time of night it was not very crowded. We were able to go right up!!

We went to all three levels. Great pics from all. We arrived morning and purchased tickets for later in the day. You need to arrive at time of your tour. No place to wait so don’t need to arrive much earlier.

You get a great view from the Top of the Rock, but there are other skyscrapers being built that now are getting in the way of certain views. I always like looking over Central Park, but now there are buildings that block small sections. Still...More

There were people using selfie sticks when we were there so as long as it's hand held and not needing to be put up in a space as a tripod would I would think it's ok but maybe try and call/ email them to check.

Yes, all done on the phone, via their website. And there’s no need to collect or print; you’ll get an e-ticket on your email with a QPR code which the staff scan at the door.
