We stumbled upon this and were very surprised. Had lots of shops inside and the ice skating rink was so amazing! We were there late at night so we did not see everything we could have, but what we did see was worth our little discovery.

We spent about 2 hours on the observation deck trying to make out all the major icons - Empire State building, Crysler Building, Yangkee stadium, New Jersey Queens, Brooklyn, etc etc. Better than Empire State Building in my books.

This is a MUST in NY. The view is very impressive and is not as freezing as Timesquare. The glasses help a lot with the wind but is not the best for taking flash pictures.

We thought this was a cool place to visit, although the NBC tour including SNL studios is closed for updating for a very long time! Beautiful lobby, ice rink outside.

This is a fun place to see- especially if you watch the Today show. It is a busy area, but a refreshing change from nearby Times square.

We had a great trip to the Top of the Rock, the view from there is amazing. We were there on a hot summer day and you could see for miles.

The Rockefeller Center offers a nice view over NYC, Central Park and you can see the light show of the Empire State Building :-) we really liked the different floors where you can get out and see NYC from above.
