Great view of NYC. A bit pricey, however what isn’t in NYC. Big lines to get to the top. Very touristy.

How anyone can rate this less than 5 stars is beyond me. Yes it’s buys and yes it takes around 45 minutes to get up but there’s no city view like that anywhere else on earth. The Empire State, the Chrysler and liberty island one...More

We went at around 10pm and there was no queue. People said it is best to come here late on the evening to get the best views, they were not wrong. Amazing views and a must do in New York
