We went to the Empire State building a few visits, before we were told about this observation deck. This is superior for viewing. It does not matter that it is not as high as unlike The Empire State Building, there are not bars to obstruct your view. As well, it is more spacious and no one is jostled or has to wait to catch a view. As well, there are places to sit and enjoy the view as well. It is less expensive and the lines are not as long as at the Empire State Building. Once you go here, you will go back when you visit NYC again!

We loved the Rockefeller so much we went back up the very same night we had been in the daytime.

Much better than the Empire state in my opinion, mainly as its not quite as busy and you cant see Central Park from the Empire !

A must see view but get there before midday when it starts to get busy. On your way to the lifts there is a pictorial history of the Rockerfeller centre. We bought the tickets from our hotel conceirge but still had to queue in line to get the tickets validated!! At the time we went there was no queue for the automated ticket machine so it would have been much quicker to get the ticket from the machine!
