We pre-booked using our NY City pass so did not have to queue too long. Great views from the observation deck and nice co-ordinated walk up to the roof

We were there and luckily for us the sun came out, everywhere looks better in the sun. We had problems actually finding the main entrance but once inside it was easy. We went early (10 am) to beat crowds and the hole visit was great.

The view from the Top of the Rock is the best in New York. The staff are also amazing - friendly and helpful.

This place is so crowded can barely get a good picture in. Took better pictures on the jump on jump off roof top bus tour. Would not recommend. Very expensive not worth it.

I love Top of the Rock, you get such fantastic views in all directions. Highly recommended to start your visit to NYC here - assuming a clear and preferably sunny day of course!

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
