Took my nephew paid the extra to go to the 102 floor. Would not spend the extra money next time and just go to 84th floor. Cost was so much more to go to top and was not worth the extra money.

Worth the price of first in line ticket. Elevators are super fast (but you do feel it in your ears). Great 360 view of New York at the from 86th floor (we did not go to the 102nd floor).

We sprang for the front of line ticket. The treatment we received was fantastic. We were pushed along quickly and were able to enjoy the Building and the rest of our day. Special props to the staff at the ESB!

Awesome views of Manhattan‘s skyline. It’s was wondeful, and without feeling pressure about the time. It is worth to see the sunset.
