You want to discover New York City from above, but don’t want to miss out the view on both the One World Trade Center and the Empire State Building? Then you should visit the Top of the Rock Observation Deck! Located in the heart of Manhattan on top of the 850-feet and 70-story Art Deco style Rockefeller Center, this observatory guarantees you an amazing view not only on all iconic buildings, but also on the Central Park. With your Top of the Rock Tickets you can enjoy the view on Manhattan from all three levels of the observatory - The 67th, 69th and 70th floor. Even the 42 seconds elevator ride to the 67th floor is a unique visual experience itself, as the glass cabin enlightens in different colors which allows an unusual view into the elevator shaft. Upon arrival at the first observation level, you will be greeted by the 35-foot Swarovski Joie Chandelier in the Grand Atrium Lobby, made of 14,000 crystals. From there, you can either visit the (partially) glass-enclosed decks on the 67th and 69th floor, which offer protection during cold and windy days, or head straight up to the 70th open-air platform via an elevator or the stairs and enjoy the panoramic view on the landmarks of New York City. Either way - All levels of the Rockefeller Center Top of the Rock are offering a unique outlook on the city!

When to visit the Top of the Rock in New York

Generally speaking, there is no specific season to recommend, as the view from the observatory is always breathtaking. However, we can give you some advice, when it comes to the best time frame for the day you are planning on conquering the Top of the Rock. Obviously, the optimal time for taking the best photos is during sunset (6 PM - 9 PM) while the city’s skyline starts to shine - But this also means, that it’s the busiest time of the day. If you want to avoid the hassle and prefer taking your pictures without being in a rush or queuing for the best spots, then why not coming to the observation deck in the morning (8 AM - 10 AM) and see the sun beautifully rising over Manhattan? Morning visits are also nice for families with children, as the little ones will have enough space to get a great view, but also to explore the three spacious floors with their playful decorations.

Whether you are preferring to use your Top of the Rock tickets for a visit in the morning or evening hours - A magnificent view will always be guaranteed!
