Lovely Night Lights

The wait in line was a bit annoying, but that is to be expected anywhere in NYC. Helpful and funny staff and a breathtaking view once at the top.

this one is worth the money. The views are incredible. You see the concrete jungle on one side and central park on the other. Better than empire state building i think.

We got tickets for this as a deal when we went to the MoMA. We went up after dinner and were impressed with the view of the city under a full moon. There weren't many people when we went, so it was really enjoyable.

Visiting this attraction and seeing the view was very surreal, having grown up in Australia and only ever seen NY landmarks in movies and on tv. We were lucky to go up on a clear and sunny (but cold and windy!) day and the view was absolutely amazing. We got beautiful photos. We easily spent an hour up there looking... More

If you're in doubt between the Empire States and this one and you have to choose one, go to the Top of the Rock. The view is just breathless. The best view of Central Park, which you can't see at the Empire States.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
