I was there because because it's currently the highest point of New York, also because I wanted to make wanted to make a memorable proposal.
It takes a litle bit of time to get up there but it's a very funny line, ppl is always making jokes and laughing sharing good vibes, so the waiting goes quick. The security is what makes this process a bit long but as I said, is for your security, almost like in a US airport.
Of course it's a beautiful view, my visit was at night and I felt in my skin how awesome is this building and the terrace.
there different packages that give you very quick access to the top, other packages take you a higher story of the building also with no lines in elevator.
I personally chose the cheapest waiting in line and in the classic terrace where you can see everything in Manhattan and beyond.
