“Great Views”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

You wont get any better views in NYC than going up the top of the rock. It has better views than the Empire State building. I have been up it twice now. once during the day and once at Dusk. The best view is at duck when you can get the lights of the city when they are just coming on. I would highly recommend doing this. there is plenty of places to eat and get a drink around the bottom of the Rockefeller..

“Awesome views - don't miss it!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We got there at 9am to get our tickets and there was no queue at all. I'm not sure what it's like later in the day but can recommend getting there early. We got tickets for 9.50am so grabbed a quick coffee at the nearby Starbucks and then went up. The views of Central Park (and everywhere else) were absolutely fantastic - even the experience of being in the lift was awesome. Better than the Empire State building in our opinion, one of the reasons being because when you're stood on the Top of the Rock, you get such a great view of the Empire State. A New York experience you definitely shouldn't miss out on.

“Get your NYC perspective on Top of the Rock.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

After a day of navigating the subways, it was great to get the perspective of the city from the Top of the Rock. We purchased tickets, saving money using AAA discount, and had time to wander the lower level of restaurants, the ice rink, and stores. There was about a 50 minute wait before the time on our ticket. The elevator ride was one of a kind in which I was encouraged by the light show to watch the ascent. We could see Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, the Theater District, a great view of the Hudson River, Central Park, the World Trade area. This is a "must see" if visiting NYC.
