“Beautiful sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We visited on the 1st march, we went up for sunset as most people recommend, the views are fantastic, it's so lovely seeing the views then as the sun goes down the lights in all the buildings start to twinkle. The elevator up is so quick, once you get to the top you have got the outside area but also an inside area where you can go to warm up a little as it was so cold at the top.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

What a view. Well organised and well worth the wait. U2 were playing for the Jimmy Fallon debut so we didn't get to go round the whole of the top floor but it was still breathtakingly beautiful on a sunny cold February. Recommended

“"Beautiful View"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is a top notch attraction and not to be missed while in New York. The building is clean and well maintained and the view from the top was the best and well organized. You can see the skyline of New York on one side and Central Park on the other. We really enjoyed the history, the sights and what a beautiful building this is.

“Top of The Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Go hear just before sunset and get a view of the Manhattan skyline with the Empire State Building in it.
It's for this reason we chose to go up this rather than the Empire State Building itself.
