    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Empire State Building and check-in at the information desk 15 minutes before sunrise, beating the crowds that inevitably arrive later in the day. Meet your group of 100 people or fewer and ascend straight to the Observation Deck on the 86th floor in time to see the sun breach the horizon. Take in 360-degree panoramic views of New York City from every side of the outdoor promenade, staying to enjoy the view from one of New York City's most iconic buildings for as long as you please. 

    When you’re ready, head back down to the ground floor and have the rest of the day to explore. This is ideal for travelers who want to make the most of their day after flying in on a red-eye.

    I booked tickets for myself and two teenage daughters on my birthday to go up to the top and then to have dinner in the restaurant. I paid everything and received my confirmation but what I didn’t see in the small print was that the restaurant wasn’t open on Sundays (when we

    So first the good: This is a wonderful way to visit the Empire State Building. If you can afford it, it is definitely worth the cash. There were about 50 of us and it felt private and was much more enjoyable than it would have been in a larger crowd. The issue I have is that

    To think that we were up the top of the Empire State building was fantastic to the views of New York around xmas time were like nothing i had ever experienced. The Empire State Building Sunrise experience was so worth it.

    I visit the Empire State Building many times throughout the year and there is no better way to experience the magic of NYC than a visit to the Observatory. I always take visitors but, it is such a treat for my wife and I to start or end a NYC evening with a visit to the Empire
