A trip to the near top of the Empire State Building is a must if you are planning a trip to NYC. We chose to arrive near dusk, and I'm glad we did. The view was simply amazing, and watching the sun set was an added treat. Though the queue was rather long when we first arrived, it moved quickly. I would recommend bringing something to drink while waiting. Please note that your online voucher must be exchanged for a ticket prior to reaching the elevators, so stay in the line with those purchasing tickets.
