    The views here are epic. Go during sunset and watch the skies transform as the city lights flickers to life. There is a colourful disco room too. That's what I call it anyway. Hehe.

    Great view of Central Park and of the Empire State Building. Simply put don't do Empire State observation, do top of the rock.

    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.

    very very messy! I bought a ticket to enter the 16: 30h and enjoy the sunset. Sao 16: 55h and I'm still in a giant queue!Lack of respect and disorganization!

    Tip to the people on vacation: arrive earlier, book your watch (preferrably to sunset) and go eat at Bill's burger while you wait. The view here is phenomenal!

    This is a MUST! Buy advance tickets to se the sunset and enjoy the view. Just try to avoid tourist with their annoying selfie sticks...

    Go there at night or just before sunset- NYC with all these lights is absolutely amazing and you have to see Empire State like this.

    Try to go up just *before* sunset, and enjoy great view of the city with last sun rays and then with night lights.

    We had the New York Pass, and kept the Top of the Rock Observatory for our last night to admire the view. Sadly, we did not know you had a reserve an "elevator time" in advance... So please: reserve!

    Stunning view from the Top of the Rock! Every time when I'm in town I come to this magical place. A tourist attraction that also attracts locals now and then. Don't miss the free WiFi Access

    Of all the common aerial view of New York City, this is, in my opinion the more beautiful! 😍

    Check in right after dusk on a weekday: it's definitely less crowded and you can admire the beautiful lights glow in the evening sky all over Manhattan.

    Laura Bonelli · September 17
  • Marco D.

    Go straight to the tippy top to get the best pictures and views and then work your way down.

    Buy your tickets online and reserve a time that's slightly before sunset. The view from up here is better than the view from the Empire State Building! Well worth it :)

    Breathtaking view of New York. Up here you can see the empire state. So it's better to come here instead of going there.

  • Michiel B.

    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.
