Went to the Empire State Building bcoz it’s a must see of New York. No big queues bcoz we got there early and bcoz of the time of year. In the summer I think it could be mental. Staff are very friendly and helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. Get to the top and yes it’s fantastic views. So go enjoy it yourselves.

Not very busy in mid November, we were not in any queues. It was beautiful but very cold with the wind.

The Empire State Building definitely gives you the best view across New York. The skyline is amazing.

This was a horrible experience. The staff are incredibly rude and the entire setup is to exort more money out of you than the already outrageous $38 ticket (that’s not even the very top!). You also forced to exit through a tacky gift shop. Then they stop you again to “inspect” your ticket to try and pressure you to buy a photo.

Go to the top of the rock or the world trade center. Do not support these vile, greedy animals.

Of course it’s cool looking down on the top of the world from so high up but it also very expensive. Save yourself the extra fees of going to the 102nd floor because the view is pretty much the same on the 80th and there is very limited space on the 102nd. I was also disappointed that there are no maps or pictures to tell you what you are looking at so you are pretty much on your own unless you know the landscape. I tried asking a couple of the guards there but was met with varying responses. One was very helpful, the other was quite abrupt.

Had a great visit. Views at night were stunning. I can say going here at night is much convenient. No need to wait in lines and you have enough space to take pictures . Personnels are accommodating and friendly.
