Definitely worth your time. The history of Rockefeller was interesting and the views were amazing - particularly the city view north where you can see Central Park. Great photo opportunities.

Hello! Yes, you may certainly move between decks during your visit.
1. What are the highlights of each floor (67th, 69th, & 70th)? 2. Is the 70th floor open air (similar to the 86th floor of ESB)? 3. Do you recommend Top of the Rock, the Empire State Building, or both?* 4. Any tips? Thanks! Inge C. * Planning to go to...

Definitely go to both if you haven't been before. Rock gives you a great picture of the Empire State. Both are open air. Try Rock in the day and Empire at night. Don't forget the new One World Observatory as well. Tallest... More
