Very big and extraordinary department store. Can be compared to Verlin or Hamburg. No food, focused on fashion and designers. Only for „money people „

Worth the visit, best views of New York 360. Set at the top of the Rockerfeller Centre, inside was 1930's Art Deco offering it's own bit of nostalgia.

I went at 8:15pm to see the sunset and the next day in the morning. The best time to go is in the morning because it was very crowded in the evening making it very difficult to take pictures. Good experience.

Tip: book it in advance! It was really helpful to just arrive and skip the queue. We went at sunset so we saw the city during the day and night.

Prefer the view from the Empire State building, this was very disappointing. Crowds of people everywhere and no one would move so we could take photographs, total waste of time

I don’t know 100% but the observation deck is a full 360 degree around the building, so I am guessing if you are on the correct side then you will have amazing views. Enjoy

It shouldn’t take any more than an hour to visit all the exhibits before going to the Top. The latest time they take people up to the Top is 10pm. If, for example, you wanted to go at 10pm, be there by 10pm. Have fun!
