Went pretty late, about 10pm. Didn't wait in line once. Spectacular views. No crowds. Got a chance to take some great photographs. Nothing to obscure the view from the top deck.

“Amazing view.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We chose to visit top of the rock because you can have the best view of the Empire State Building plus an unit erupted view of Central Park I loved it and spent a good 2 hrs up there. I took my best pictures here.

“Better than Empire State”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I've visited Top of the Rock observation deck twice now and highly recommend it to NYC visitors. The observation deck has 3 levels that you can check out. And rather than having metal fencing around the perimeter, the deck has glass with gaps in between so you can easily take photographs. The lines aren't as long either, so you don't have to waste your precious vacation time waiting in line. I recommend going at night time - the city lights are amazing. Finally, you are able to see the Empire State building and Central Park, so the views are fantastic.

“Great view”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I went on a Friday afternoon. It wasn't too crowded and it was quick to get up and back down again with small queues. There are three floors so there is plenty of place to take in the view and take photos. The top floor is best for photos as there is no screen in front of you. Finally of course great views of New York.
