Top of the Rock, New York City

4.7
Get above many of Manhattan's high-rises at Top of the Rock, with an unobstructed, 360-degree view from the 70th floor. You can also gaze far and wide from protected outdoor terraces on the 67th and 69th floors. After a renovation that kept it closed for several years, the deck reopened in 2005. Designed to resemble an ocean liner's deck, the observation deck offers a bird's-eye view of many of the city's iconic buildings. A timed entry system helps keep the lines shorter and the experience less crowded than at other viewing platforms in the city. Save even more time by purchasing your tickets online.

  • Definitely a must see. We ordered tickets online and had to pick a time. They will only let you in when it's your time slot, but it's a very efficient system. You have to go through security, but it went very quickly. The observation decks were breath taking. Would definitely do again!
  • It was awesome. I visited during Thanksgiving. 3:55 time is perfect. You start getting good pictures from 5 PM. Make sure you go all the way to the top. I bought my tickets through City Pass and I ended up saving extra 10 $ sunset time price. It's best to go on a clear day. If you want a good view of the Central Park day time is better.
