It is definitely an awesome experience going on that ledge and getting a view of the entire city. I am glad we endured the LINES because once we got our little 35 seconds in that ledge it felt like a little eternity and the pictures are amazing memories.
Go closer to sunset, the view and the pictures are better!
Buy the express lane if you can afford it
Buying tickets online do not save you ANY time
When you get up to the ledge, one of them is dedicated to professional tour photography and it is worth getting your picture taken there first and then go stand in line to get on the ledge again, to just simply experience it and not worry about the picture deal with a million people trying to get in.
