We visited the top of the rock on a not so clear day, however the views were still breathtaking. It's hard to comprehend all of the buildings in such a small area.

Great views from this not as prominent sky scraper nestled in the concrete jungle. Excellent chance for photo ops on any of the 3 observation levels. Plenty of food choice in surrounding area. Easy to get to with subway etc
