Went as a family and the view was fantastic! We bought the NYC pass and this was one of the included attractions. There wasn't a queue to get in at all. As we were making our way up, there was lots of information on the walls with the history of it all.

We went late March and it was freezing! So wrap up warm if you go in winter!

Went to the Top of the Rock at night time to see New York lit up. It was simply awesome! So well organised , you are given a time and this means no waiting in long lines.

Top of the Rock is a fantastic way to get a panoramic view of NYC. The line/length of time to get to the top is much less that of the Empire State Building. It's great to go during sunset and see all the lights turn on in the city. The observation deck is three floors and of course, has a gift shop.

Top of the Rock is very well organised, somewhat expensive but is anything apart from staten island ferry great value? We were going to do Empire State but this was better as the Empire State was in the pictures. Wasn't too busy, had 15 minute wait to get up there. One of our gang who told us after he had a problem with heights found it bearable.

We arrived at about 10:00 pm. The line was short. While we stood in line to buy our tickets, we were given an extra ticket by a random stranger so I only had to buy 2 more. The tour was interesting and beautiful.
