You can see forever in both directions. Down Central Park and towards the World Trade Center working it's way to the sky. We enjoyed it and it's fun young staff.

“Great view but not nearly as good as the Empire State building.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

This is only 60 stories so you're 40 stories below the deck of the empire state building which is less than a mile away. I would make the small detour for the better view.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We got some excellent views from here. We were advised to go up at night rather than Empire State and this way you could get some excellent photo's of the Empire State Building whilst lit up.

“Fantastic View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We went up around sunset and had the most amazing view. The only drawback was the amount of people allowed up at one time. It was very crowded.
