The longer you look, the more you see. It is fascinating to see the buildings, river, boats - each building is so unique and beautiful. It is a great way also to understand the geography of Manhattan Island.

Had the tour added as part of the New York pass - was very worthwhile and we jumped the queue to the top at the end of the tour.

It sells out quickly, make sure you buy tickets in advance or early morning. Go all the way to the top, so beautiful!

I think the view here is better compared with Empire State Building. Had the New York pass but the que was pretty long, so ended up doing the Rockefeller center tour in between which was amazing!! Highly recommend.

Don’t be fobbed off with the Empire State Building, this is the building, you get the best view which includes the Empire State Building and the one world observatory. Loved the gift shop at the top.

Well worth visiting, especially at night. The only bad point to our visit was the glass was a bit grubby with hand Mark's and smears so had to take photos through the gaps between each glass panel. Although, this didn't spoil our experience one bit!

We went up after been told it was the best view of manhattan. You get a 360 view great for pictures. You can buy a photo guide to tell you what you are looking at.

We were told that we MUST visit the Top Of The Rock—so we did. First we approached a lady at the door who directed us to ticket counter. From there—be warned...the eventual venue we sought was an unbelievable series of twists and turns, up &...More

The views are fantastic, but way too many people up there, and many of them won't move and they block the view! I can imagine the crowds will be even worse in high tourist seasons. If you want to go during the popular times (sunset),...More

The views are amazing from any side of the building. When on the elevator you are not able to feel how fast it moves. Expect some wait time but well worth the wait.

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal

It shouldn’t take any more than an hour to visit all the exhibits before going to the Top. The latest time they take people up to the Top is 10pm. If, for example, you wanted to go at 10pm, be there by 10pm. Have fun!
