    If you are planning on visiting other museums, I recommend buying the New York City Pass.

    Do Top of the Rocks when it opens (8am) and Empire State Building at night.

    An Art Deco masterpiece filling floors 67 to 70. The unobstructed 360 degree view through the crystal clear glass is astonishing, it will leave you awestruck at how beautiful New York really is. Read more

    This is a great place to see the city. The wait is recommended.

    If you want to take pictures around sunset, make sure you get there at least half an hour before that time. It will be very crowded. Also: mini tripods appear to be permitted.

    Alright, people: take your pictures and step aside. You're not alone here.

    Beats the Empire State Building for two reasons: 1. Your view of Manhattan now includes the ESB, and 2. The glass around you means an unobstructed view and comparatively better photos of yourself! ;)

    One of the best times to go is just about sunset...you get to see the city during the day at sunset and then a short while later you get to see it lit up with all the lights..Awesome..Best view of NYC Read more

    take a spot to the roof where you can see the sunset. Also if you can order the tickets online you'll avoid long queues.

    If I'd have to pick one observation deck, I'd chose this one. Buying untimed ticket on the web is useless, you still have to queue to schedule the visit, it's slower than buying tickets at the automat

    A great time to visit the top of this skyscraper is 30 minutes before sundown, when the sky displays an array of colors and you are able to see the lights coming alive all around NYC.

    The best time to come here? The day before Thanksgiving. Nearly empty plus the leaves in Central Park are at their peak-fallness.

    Best observatory in Manhattan imo, with great views of uptown, downtown and across the East River. If you like modern art get a combo ticket that gives entry to the MoMA too.
  • Patricia O.
    When purchasing tickets from other vendors, you have to exchange your passes for tickets with scheduled time to go to the top.

    WTF is so difficult about getting people into an elevator ?! The view is outstanding but don't believe the hype : there IS a huge queue, you just can't see it from outside. You'll even queue to exit..

    Amazing views of Manhattan. Visit on a clear day for the best effect. The outdoor terraces are great but vertigo inducing. Look up as the elevator starts its ascent!

    Don't get Sun & Stars ticket. If you were here at day time, visit Empire State at night or vice-versa. Completely different experiences.

    Best view ever! For me better than empire state because you can see the empire state and the Central park, because of that better in the day

    Unbelievable views. Time your visit to catch sunset and stay through twilight. Go straight to the 3rd deck and park yourself right at the south-facing views. Then, simply wait, and be amazed.

    Head up there is around sunset; this is when the entire city is bathed in warm colors and makes for memorable photos when contrasting with the city lights.
