Absolutely incredible views. We visited at a lunch time on a Saturday, no queues.
Would recommend on the New York Pass but the prices for a normal customer seemed very expensive.
Fantastic views, even saw a proposal - congratulations to the couple, great choice of venue to do it!

We chose this instead of the Empire State building. it's a little bit lower, but I'd imagine the views are similar.
This (or the Empire State) is a must-do when in New York city. We went up near sundown and stayed until after nightfall. It is a cliche to say the views were spectacular, but that's what they were. Simply spectacular.
A well-organised queue to the top, with videos on the history of the building to keep people entertained. You can spend as long as you like at the top, there are different levels and you can come inside and still look out in cold weather. We found the night time views to be particularly good.

This is a must do when in New York. The views across Central Park are fantastic, all the way up he Bronx. The views downtown, midtown, lower Manhattan, east and west and the view over to Brooklyn are also beautiful. We went up an hour before sunset and stay until 40 minutes after it was spectacular. I recommend this time of day as you get to see three different experiences. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and will help out when they can.

A fairly easy side trip with decent payoff. We went early to avoid crowds. Once to the top go up two floors for an unobstructed view.

Unlike other sky scrapers in the area you get to stand on the roof of this building. A lift with a clear ceiling lets you look up the loft shaft as you make your way to the top. Great views through the glass walls at the top

Aside the cattle herding it was fun at the top but for me rather pricey!

It is after all just a ride in the elevator with a city view. I counted 18 people per elevator, per minute potentially ca $600/min!

Having said that we still enjoyed the view of the Empire State Building.

Definitely find time during your trip to visit this landmark as the views are amazing. Queues were to a minimum when we visited in the evening. Staff very helpful and friendly.

This is, in my opinion, the best skyscraper to go up in NYC. We visited the night of the 2018 mid-terms, so 30 Rock was lit up in red, white and blue and had a huge crowd outside for the TV crews. That said, the tower itself was very quiet. It's great to see the Empire State Building lit up too, as it puts on a different show each night. The price is pretty much the same as other sky scrapers though, so not much difference there. We went up at night and had such a clear view.

For plane spotters, a lot of traffic into Newark will fly right overhead if they are performing a go around. Planes landing into LGA can also be seen pretty closeby.

This is definitely the best view of NYC.
You’ll get a 360 surround view of the city including the historic Empire State Building which you won’t see nor have on your pics when you are on top of it. Hence, Top of the Rock simply is the smarter choice.

Beautiful view, probably even better than the empire state building but this is my opinion as lots of people do not like it that much. Just go there and enjoy the stunning view, little tip, go only if the weather is nice.
