“From the Empire State Building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Awesome views. Yup, the wait is long, but you can get the express pass that gets you up to the elevators, you'll still wait, but not for 2.5 hours.

“Top of the Rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

It's the best place to see the skyline -- since you get to see the Empire State Building as well.

“Magnificent & Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Nothing in the US provides me with the thrill I get from seeing the Manhattan Skyline from the sky or the gound. It is compelling and with the new WTC 1 now rising (higher than the iconic Empire State building now), it is a vision to behold.

“Incomparable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Energy galore! Beautiful. Love to see it from the Staten Island Ferry at sunset, or from the George Washington Bridge at night.
