    There is a shorter line if you enter from the underground entrance. From the 47-50th subway station walk north underground and follow the signs.

    Feels like standing on the top of the world, baby, top of the world! Be smart and get a MoMA/ToTR combo ticket for 30 bucks (sold at MoMA).

    If you want to see the NYC skyline with the Empire State Building in it, this is the best way to do it. Scope for some amazing photography!

    Free app available with audio tour. Fills the time while waiting in line, but if the line is short be sure to skip ahead to match your location. Go at night and see the Empire State bldg lighted.

    Better than Empire State Building because you can *see* Empire State Building

    This probably has a better view of NYC than being on the top deck of Empire state building (I've been to both)

    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

    It's beautiful here at night.But I think it will be prettier with the day light.

    First morning we were in New York, our first stop was Top of the Rock. Best decision ever, because it helps put things into a massive context - you get great bearings and a sizing of Central Park

    Best view of NY. You can't see the Empire State Building if you're standing on it so see it from The Rock instead.

    Visit the TOTR around sunset and stick around. You'll witness the gotham in transition.

    Skip the lines at the Empire State Building and come here. You get a designated time to board the elevators and 3 decks to view New York City from. Also- check out the ceiling at Rock Center.

    Great view - Empire state, central park, statue of liberty.. you see it all. The best part is, book your tickets for a specific time and avoid the long queues, typically seen at the empire state.

    Way cheaper than the empire with just as good of views. Plus, it's only $14 if your military, police, or firefighter.

    Allow for 1-2 hours of waiting time. Might be important if you want to take blue hour shots.

    On a clear sunny day you can see ALL of hands down has the best view of the city! It's expensive, but well worth it for the photo ops and the futuristic elevator ride!

    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! ;)

    When purchasing tickets from other vendors, you have to exchange your passes for tickets with scheduled time to go to the top.
