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
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.
Personnel were efficient in getting viewers to observation decks, and giving direction for different areas. The views were amazing (except for some fog in the a.m.). However, your website should be more specific in the documents necessary for ticketing - luckily your customer service person was very efficient and courteous, so problem was solved. Would recommend this experience to others.
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.
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.
