We arrived around nine in the morning on a weekday, and there were no lineups. The view was very beautiful and the very top floor of the observation deck doesn't have any barriers that blocks your view. They let you know at the front desk what kind of visibility to expect, so we were aware that it was cloudy, which... More

The lines were huge at 5 pm. It took us 2 hours to get to the top. We had to book a time for the elevator and once in that elevator, we had to get off and go through airport like security with Xray machines. Then we waited again for elevators in a huge room full of people - very... More

This has the best views of the city, you can get a picture of the skyline with the Empire State building on one side and the expansive Central Park on the other. It's a bit pricey, but still worth checking out.

We booked the sun and stars ticket which meant we got 2 trips up. Well worth the extra and you got to see NY at night too .

What a view. Worth every cent. You've seen the view so many times on films and tv but it doesn't compare to the real thing

My favourite building is the Empire State but you cannot see it of course when you are up there. so Rockefeller is the very best way to see the Empire State as well as the rest of mid town, fantastic

My family and I loved the Top of the Rock. We go around Christmas. Crowds are larger at that time of the year but in my opinion its the best time to go.

Having already done the Empire State we thought we'd try this. The lift ride to the top is brilliant! Fantastic views from all three decks thanks to the glass walls - preferred it to the Empire State Building

Get up early, you won't be disappointed by lack of crowds and abundance of space. Views of Central Park are spectacular!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
