Top sights in New York
One World Trade Center might offer New York's highest observation deck, but the city's most beloved views can be seen from the Rockefeller Center and Empire State Building. Both offer their own Art Deco charm, but here's what else Top of the Rock's got!
The Top of the Rock observation deck spans three stories, with each adding its own unique touches to the views over Central Park and the Empire State Building!
In line with J.D. Rockefeller Jr.'s patronage of the arts, the views aren't all there is to see at the top! Currently featured is the dazzling "Radiance Wall" created by Swarovski.
The doors close and the lights go dim. Suddenly the top clears to reveal the inner workings of the dramatically lit elevator shaft as you hurtle upwards! The way down's great too!
Visiting with kids? Be sure to check out Top of the Rock's Breezeway attraction. They'll have great fun changing the colors of the room with their every move!
Hands down the best reason to visit the Top of the Rock is the hub of culture swimming at its feet. The Rockefeller Center is a must-do on any New York tourist itinerary!
The Top of the Rock Observation Deck is open daily from 8AM till midnight. The last elevator to the top departs at 11PM.
Ticket prices start at $30 for adults, with concessions for children and seniors. Tickets are available to buy at the entrance, but book online to avoid the lines.

What people are saying about Top of the Rock Observation Deck
Great tour by foot. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. We covered all of Central Park and then got to see the Top of the Rock. Easy to follow multi-lingual tour with plenty of stops and photo opportunities. There is a lot of walking (be aware) but I think that this is the best way to see New York and what it has to offer. highly recommended.
Lots of seen and learned. Good guide, good explanation in Harlem and around Central park. Beautiful ambience in High line Chelsea and Market.
Great instrument. Although people forget that tourists are there to visit and be the ambassodor for the next visitors and are not there to be stolen from.
In New York, easy to take subway, you can go to Battery Park , pick your boarding pass Ferry ticket to Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Immigration Museum. You should to know which subway line take you to right place. Google map will help you. Central Park is good place for walk.
Very good value. Helped us get very organised about the attractions and what was available to us.
