    The Night is Very Nice..

    Spent about an hour in six different lines to get to the top, but it was kinda worth it, especially if what they say about Empire state building lines is true :)

    Go straight up the escalators to the top levels - much less crowded.

    The best view of the city! Try to go on a sunny day at the sunset but it's very crowded always!

    Amazing view of NYC, we went up first thing in the morning to beat the crowds and got some awesome photos. Much better experience than the Empire State Building.

    Luke Cardy · January 1

    Top of the Rock is wonderful. Pretty much at the heart of Midtown, I had a mesmerizing view of the entire city.

    Love this building, takes you back to a golden period for the city. Great view and style, I prefer this to the ESB, as you can see the ESB from this one ;)

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

    The best place to see all New York, buy your tickets at the machines with a credit card, its more easy and faster

    You will get better views from here than from the crowded Empire State Building.

    Carl Griffin · December 25, 2015

    You must do it at day and night. Best rooftop of all NYC. Forget the Empire State. Here you don't have steel bars to take pictures. Forget to bring your tripod. You can't pass with it.

    Went to the very top with my kids. Loved the experience. I also liked that random santa somewhere on the 70th floor

    David Milberg · December 18, 2015
  • Ania B.

    The view is spectacular and breathtaking and there is not much more to say. Avoid the most crowded periods like holidays and summer. The stuff is very helpful and nice.

    The view was nice. The staff screamed at us to keep moving. We did not get to read the walls or watch the films on the history of the building. KEEP MOVING! Very annoying. Not worth $40.

    The view is better here than Empire State, as you get to see the skyline including it

    Germán Sanchez · November 28, 2015
  • Sean S.

    Most amazing view of Central Park. Love taking visitors here.

    Sean Smith · November 23, 2015
  • Gary H.

    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.

    Gary Hor · November 21, 2015
  • Rodrigo A.

    Great and cheaper than Empire State

    It was the top of the world. Book your time at the sunset

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

    James · November 12, 2015
  • Emily L.

    three floors of observatory -- climb to the top for the best views

    Emily L · November 8, 2015
  • Rafi R.

    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.

    Rafi Romero · November 8, 2015
  • Dri C.

    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!

    Dri Castro · November 3, 2015
  • Victor M.

    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!

    Victor Martins · November 3, 2015
  • Emiliano S.

    The best view in NY.

    Emiliano Severoni · October 27, 2015
  • Raw

    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...

    Raw · October 24, 2015
  • Petra M.

    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.

    Petra Mervartová · October 20, 2015
  • Andrew F.

    Great view

    Andrew Furman · October 19, 2015
  • Vito T.

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

    Vito Tartaglia · October 13, 2015

    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!

    Camille Verdier · October 11, 2015

    Probably best view of city. With its 260m high your not at highest but in the middle of everywhere including empire state view

    dunya dicle · October 11, 2015

    Come for last elevator at 10:45, night views are awesome

    Rafa Escaño · October 10, 2015

    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

    Caroline · October 9, 2015

    Get your pass in advance to avoid the queues.

    Beautiful view!

    Horacio Sanchez · September 30, 2015
  • Bruno C.

    Tourist attraction so always crowded, but nice city views

    Lily Kwong · September 27, 2015
  • Marzia m.

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

    Marzia milkydrop · September 26, 2015
  • Sherie S.

    Great experience when in NYC

    Sherie Swerdlow · September 18, 2015
  • Laura B.

    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, 2015
  • Marco D.

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