We tried to plan it so we would be there at sunset but they were busy so it was well after dark before we went up. Make reservations ahead of time if you want to go up at a certain time. I have a pretty...More

Kind employees, fast lines, great views! We went at 9am and spent about an hour and a half! We used CityPass and the ticket transfer was simply done through a kiosk!

Great place to see the city, in my view much better that the Empire State as from here you can view it and central park too. Very reasonable and went through very quickly. Staff were very helpful

It wasn't very obvious where the entrance was to go to the top, but once there it was very much worth it. We went up to the top after dark and the view with all the lights was incredible!

Arguably the best views of New York. The observation area has three levels and numbers are controlled entering and leaving the elevators so it never gets totally overcrowded. It is awesome to see the whole of Manhattan spread out around you and it is probably...More
