“Superb views!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Spent two hours here. Much preferred this to The Empire State building. Went up just before dusk and so saw the daylight, dusk and night time views. Whole family agreed this was the better of the two attractions. Had our photo taken on a beam with the backdrop which we had emailed to us for a couple of dollrs extra on the ticket price. Only downside was a rude assistant in the Kodak kiosk who didn't listen to me and accused me of biting her head off when I told her that I had already asked three times to see my photos so I could decide. This lead to her not offering if we wanted to buy the second photo and so they lost a sale.

“Top of the Rock at night is fabulous”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I've been to Top of the Rock before but recently went with a work group at night. This is the way to do it. We had a 9:30pm reservation. At that time of night, there were no lines. We went right up. At night you have a beautiful view of everything.

If you have a group from out of town, they should at some point see NYC from a rooftop somewhere. This may be the best one out there.

“Great way to view the city by night! !”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Great way to view the city by night! Would suggest do the empire state by day then you get 2 views! Wish they used the phone system tlike empire state as it gives you an understanding of what your looking at!

“Awesome”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

What a great experience. We went early in the morning and had a wonderful, low-crowd (cold) experience. Great view! It was great to look out over Central Park and the Empire State Building! Wonderful employees. Every employee we encountered from the ticket sales people to the elevator operators, to the security guards, was friendly and helpful. While I haven't been to the ESB, my mom has, and she said after our visit to Top of the Rock that she preferred Top of the Rock. It's not cheap, but it was a great experience!
