This is a must to do, particularly on a clear day. It was amazing how the guys built the building back then.

My trip to NYC was all I imagined and more. I am so happy I added the NY Skyride and Empire State Building Observatory to my itinerary. Looking at the city from such heights is indescribable, it's a must do. I highly recommend it to anyone, and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!

Our family loved the Empire State Building. My wife is frightened of heights but we encouraged her to go to the top and then out onto the outside platform - she loved it in fact thought it was the best thing we did in New York. We did the ESB in the morning having visited Top of the Rock the previous evening. It was great to do them at different times as you get a different perspective. Great views from TOTR too particularly seeing ESB lit up. We also booked NY Skyride. You ride this before going up the ESB and get a 'helicopter' style ride over NYC with a Kevin Bacon commentary. The ride and area are undergoing a refurbishment and it does need upgrading. The ride did allow us to avoid the queues to go up the ESB but I wouldn't bother booking it again unless the refurb provides a significant improvement. That said ESB was marvellous with views right across the city with the one looking South towards the Statue of Liberty particularly impressive. The gift shop was also very good. When in New York, you must do the ESB!!!

A great starting point to introduce visitors to NYC . It gave us a great layout and view of NYC and assisted us greatly in getting our bearings and enjoy the rest of our holiday. Geoff Walsh Melbourne Australia

Very good. But, it's time to make it so you don't have to print if you don't want. Smart Phones should be enough. Great though and easy.
