    For $22, you can have the best view of New York. I advice you to visit for the sunset, it's beautiful!

    If this will be your only visit here, consider getting the upgraded fastback ticket.

    Definitely upgrade to the EXPRESS pass. It is $25, but the lines to the observation deck are ridiculous. Passes are totally worth it!!!

    Worth the ticket, the exposition on its construction is impressive and the views from the top are incredible

    1,050 ft up in the air might make it seem like your not on Earth any more but the occasional pigeons will remind you where you're at. :)

    It opens at 8:00. Go then. At 10:00 the queue is just astonishing.

    This is one of the "MUST" see landmarks in New York City. The outdoor balcony offers a 360 breath taking city view.

    Line up for an hour outside the building then over an hour inside the building then walk up the stairs 6 floors coz the lift doesn't work. Go to top of the rock instead

    Don't just see it from the ground, spend that $25 to hit the top. You won't regret it...unless you forget to bring a camera.

    Know a tenant? You can go up to the Observatory for half price and skip the line if you're with someone who has a Building ID.

    The observation deck is a must for life-long New Yorkers and tourists alike. Skip the wait and go before a night on the town, or after a romantic date – the observation deck is open until 2AM. —Joey

    How are there not mobs of people checked in here? There are at least a thousand people just in line for the observation decks at any given time!

    Avoid the skyride, it's a joke of an 8-10 min ride that's not worth you're money

    "the early bird gets the worm" rings true for this place. I was through security and at the observation deck faster than expected.

    Goegeous building. Don't visit 86th floor deck on a rainy or foggy day. Keep your bucks for another day.
