Great view, well worth a visit. Especially popular in the evenings, but be warned they monitor ticket numbers, so may want to buy your ticket in advance to ensure you get the time you want to go up there. Bit manic at the top.

Highly recommend a visit to top of the rock, we had an evening slot to visit and because there isn’t a time limit to how long you can stay up there for, we got to see the sunset and the all the lights being switched on on the Empire State Building etc........ the views are amazing you won’t see a lit up skyline like it

This is better then the Empire State Building due to the fact that you don’t have significant less queues

we went there on the 27th of December and it was freezing at the top of the observation deck but the views were absolutely amazing of all the skyscraper lit up at night and is the view you normally see on the day time but when we went to collect our tickets we were told that there would be a 2hours wait before we could go up.

Incredible in every way the height, structure, view and lobby area everything thing one would need to make the wait not seem so long. Breathe taking view both day and night.
