The view from the top is beautiful! You get to see the Empire State Building and Central Park perfectly. The only negative is the price which was over $30 to ride to the top which to me was a bit high.

The view is great but the costs of everything at the top is ridiculous. Over 5 dollars for a small bottle of water!

In my opinion, the best views of the city. Very easy to access with the subway system, and you get to have the Empire State Building in your photos.

The view from the top of the rock was great and even better than the empire state building in my opinion. On my next trip I have to check world trade

There is food outlets and coffee shops under the ground level but not on the observation decks. Lovely shops in the basement levels!
