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
The views were excellent. but I was annoyed that there I was no photographer at the top of the Rock, Since I had paid to have a photo taken there. Also I did not receive the photo that was taken inside it did not appear in y email. Dissapointed, Sylvia
Our guide, Jenn Andres, with New York Tour 1, was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. She was energetic, personable, funny and friendly and our entire group loved her and enjoyed the tour.
It was a little hard to figure out how to get on the bus to begin with....we were not in Times Square when we wanted to hop on. Once we figured that out, we liked the ability to hop off somewhere, explore and get back on again; hassle free. One seat (the last available) didn't have a seat cushion and I tore my jeans standing up. Other that that, it was a convenient way to see NYC.
Wonderful & extremely knowledgeable guide. Got to see lots of great places from all of our favorite holiday movies!
Our guide, Stan O'Connor, was excellent. Great tour, especially if you have a limited amount of time ti spend in the city.
