Do not take any photos until you are on the roof. No glass, nothing to protect you from the outside and your pictures will be much more realistic.

This is a great choice for getting a great 60 view around New York. It puts everything in perspective as to where everything is. I know the Empire State Building is also a great viewing platform - but the really good thing about Top of...More

It's not a cheap thing to do but fur the view it's definitely worth it. Be sure to go all the way up to the top for the best unobstructed views.

We were always unsure what the best building to go up was when in NYC. The Rockefeller sunset visit was a fantastic experience both watching the sunset and the lights of the city at night take over. A memorable experience.

Bought the city pass and came here for first night of a week in New York. Fabulous views across the city, pity it was too cloudy for one of the red sunsets but we did see the full moon.

We decided to do 'top of the rock' at night and the 'freedom tower' in the day - great decision. Rockefeller is a great area at night anyway, and visiting the top at night gives superb views and fantastic photo opportunities.

We had a ticket for 12:30 pm and were told that meant once we got in we could stay for as long as we liked. So I am guessing that meant we could stay until after dark/ closing. For planning purposes, best to call the 'Top of... More

The standard ticket (military discount) includes a trip to the top without a time limit. Some of the special offer rates like VIP let you schedule your trip time so you can avoid lines. Hope this helps!
