“On a clear day...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

You don't need to buy any of the NY souvenirs. Just take a couple of pictures on top of 30 Rock and you'll be set. During my visit to the top of the Rock, the sky was blue and clear and the view of New York was breathtaking. Just take a look at all the visitor photos to get an idea of the amazing view you'll get to see. Nuff said. Well worth the price of admission. I only wished I had the chance to see it by night.

“Fun to see all the sites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Was told that it was better than the Empire State Building & easier to get into. Enjoyed my view of what I could see, but I unfortunately was ther after dark & what I could see was limited. Would definitely recommend

“Very good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The views are great despite some repairs on the west-deck. Some might tell you that a CITYPASS helps you getting up the building faster, it's only because you avoid the lines. Ha.
Please take pictures of the ESB.

“views from top of the rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

everyone who visits New York should go to the Top of the Rock,amazing veiws of the whole city. More room to walk around than the Empire State building although that is a must also. WE went there at the end of a fabulous New York tour, we stayed as long as we wanted , no one hurries you along, will be going again in June.
