We went at night - wasn't so busy and was absolutely brilliant. Amazing views of the city. We also did the Rockerfeller Centre Tour which was very informative before going up to the Top of the Rock.

For some crazy reason, we decided a Saturday afternoon would be a great time to visit. So did hundreds of others! In spite of being so hectic the organisation and crowd management once you board the elevators is superb. Initially getting to the lifts is a big issue - with no nearby waiting areas and a safety protocol that means... More

Great place to visit. The view is super! Not so crowded the day we visited, no waiting lines. At the top blue clear skies and the city as background was worth the visit despite the cold and windy weather.

The views are worth the while. We went up on a day with gale force winds and it was not so nice on the top 2 (outdoor) viewpoints, but since it was our last day in NY we pushed to go and if you could hold on to the railing the views were great. This is the best place to... More

This is a must see while you are in New York especially at night. You really see how much is really sitting in New York. All the buildings and the skyline that is New York City.

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.
