When you see the queues at the Empire State building you immediately know why you have booked this trip. Be wary of the street sellers trying to sell you tickets for the sky ride. We got done as we were informed that they were only $19 each. Ended up paying $26. If you can book this via Viator then I highly recommend it as it is a good experience. Highly recommend that you book this excursion through viator. But remember to present your voucher as it is not the required ticket. The voucher is exchanged for a ticket at the counter and you need proof of ID. Awesome experience.

We went to the Empire State Building on a cloudy day, so we only were ale to see from the observatory, not the highest point for observation. We went early in the morning, about 10:00 AM, and we walked right in. Even though it was cloudy, we could see almost all of NYC and beyond to the bridges and New Jersey. We took our two grandkids, 12 and 7, and they totally enjoyed it.

We went on a Monday: No lines; in an instant on top of the building. Not to many people. Breathtaking views.

Perfect weekend! Enjoyed the Empire State Building especially since I purchased the skip the line tickets to get to the top. Beautiful view.

As with my review of the top of the rock,the ticketing and queues were very fast(did not need to use my skip the line ticket)The viewing platform is not as spacious as top of the rock but is still a wonderful expereance.

I didn't skip the queue but we passed through quickly anyway. A really great day out and the audio is really informative. No need to rush through, just take it all in.
