“Best View in NY”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

One other rater suggested we go at sunset. We were not disappointed! It was beautiful even though we went up on a very cold day. Plan early, it can take more than an hour to get through the lines.

“Love in an Elevator”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Very cool elevator ride to the top of one of NYC's best buildings. The ceiling disappears on the ride up so you can see the elevator shaft. The observation decks are huge! We didn't feel crowded and the views of the skyline are great. Empire State and Chrysler buildings look spectacular and you get a whole new perspective of Central Park

We really enjoyed our trip to the top of the Rock. Book in advance for 30 mins before sunset so that you can experience both day and night time views

“A Perfect View”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

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.
