“Amazing Views”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

My husband and I chose to come to the Top of the Rock over the Empire State Building, mainly for the open air views. It did not disappoint! In my opinion, a little overpriced at $27 each, but that's everything in NYC for you.

When we first got there, the line was huge because it had been cloudy the 2 days before. We decided to purchase a timed ticket online, and came back after doing some other things. It was very easy that way, I would definitely recommend purchasing tickets online / from your phone first.

Anyway, the views are great, easy to get to, lots to do in the area as well! GO!

“Great view!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The $27 fee is a little much. Especially since you have to deal with tourists (yeah, I see the irony - we were tourists) - but people really camped out at the edge which was pretty inconsiderate given there were people waiting for a chance to get photos. Stlll, the view towards downtown was amazing. And the good thing about choosing TOTR over the Empire state Building, is the ESB is the centerpiece of our pix!

“A Must See!!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We went here after a show at about ten in the evening to see the lights of Manhattan. Great thing to do at night and no real queues which during the day can build up quite a long - so good choice to go at night.

“You just have to do it.”

No words can describe how amazing it is, you must do it.
We went in the evening so you cannot believe the lights.
