“Top of the Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

If you re next to the Rockefeller center you must see the top of the rock view.
Personally it is even has a better view than the view from the Empire state building. The view is beautiful both during the day and night.

“Able to see it all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Wonderful views and a good way to get a perspective of the city parts in Manhattan and great views of Brooklyn and Queens/Astoria. Gives a quiet look from up above in a relaxed setting.

“Great way to get up high”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Top of the Rock is a great way to see NYC from a high perspective. It has great views of Central Park and many of the landmark buildings in the city, including The Empire State Building. Super cool experience.
