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.

What people are saying about Top of the Rock Observation Deck
Fantastic experience, excellent staff and well managed with excellent facilities and large viewing platforms. however a little confused on where to actually start, a few more signs might help and a too many guests allowed at same time.
This ticket saves you a little time, but be aware that there is still a bit of planning needed if you visit the Rockefeller on a busy day. We went to the entrance at 18:30 and were only able to book a visit at 20:30.
Excellent deal and fantastic location, best views of NYC. Went for sunset and twinkly city lights. Wrap up warm!
Lots of seen and learned. Good guide, good explanation in Harlem and around Central park. Beautiful ambience in High line Chelsea and Market.
We arrived 24 hours before and exchanged our GYG voucher for 2 tickets the following day for the sunset slot. Dont expect to get this premium time without getting your tickets in advance. Incredible views and super friendly staff. Good queue management. Toilets available and option to skip the cheesy 'tourist' photo at the start.
