“Fabulous views!”

We visited the Empire State building during the day and the Top of the Rock at night to see the beautiful views of the skyline both day and night.

“A site not to miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

There are more sparkly skylines - like the one in Hong Kong. There are skylines with taller buildings - like the one in Chicago.
But New York's skyline is historic, and majestic and dense with incredible variety. It has a different personality during the day than at night, from close-up and far away. The Circle Line gives visitors a good close up view. To get a better view of the skyline take the ferry over to New Jersey and drink it in from across the river.
