Ran into these guys and was sold what we were told was a ticket to the 102nd floor observatory - turns out it wasn't - just to the 86th and the Skyride. Should have known better, seemed too good to be true; was too good...More
Lying hustling salesmen, most are probably fresh out on parole and tell you lies to sell you a ticket to a retarded moving platform with a video from 1995. Got my money back after I called the home office and complained relentlessly. The owners of...More
We got scammed by the guys in blue jackets outside Empire state building, we paid 98 usd for two adults. He had already charged 98 usd and would not give us the money back, although the price should be 64 usd. Piece of s**t company.
We went to the sky ride as it was on our New York City pass and we were already at the Empire State Building anyway.
I was quite looking forward to it as something a bit different. Well, even if you have it for free...More

We were short of time and agreed to the "VIP priority service" offered by Skyride sales people operating around the queues for the official ESB tickets. We were told the premium would be $3 per ticket. The premium was in fact over $30 a ticket....More
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
