Outstanding views all around the building, breath taking. well worth the visit. You see so much of New York from up here as you would expect. My favourite was looking over to Central Park, see that expanse of land in the concrete jungle

Visited in the day time. Wasn't too busy,excellent lives. Have your photo taken on the way in and it's ready for you when you reach the top. Climb a few extra steps to enter the outside observatory. Well worth a visit.

Best NYC views, better than the ones from the Empire State as you can see both Central Park and the skyscrapers

Although been to NYC before first time at Top of the Rock. It was excellent and gives good views of central park and the Empire State. Not as iconic as Empire State but dare I say better?

The central location allows for great views of the city on a sunny day. The top floor has less barriers and allows for very nice pictures.
