Without a doubt this is the place that offers the best views over Manhattan. Worth the cost to visit Forget about Empire State or other observatories. This is the place to go if you want the best views

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
