We had a great time and the view is spectacular! We went in the day and then back again in the evening. I suggest going early to avoid the crowds. The night time viewing was so crowded that we could barely walk around. Early day viewing is awesome.
Wonderful. Took a while winding around a whole floor till we got to elevator top. Even more moves from spot to spot than at Disneyworld, but staff was so pleasant and we didn't wait long (on Mon. A.M.) so won't complain. Great views from every direction.
My college friend and I LOVED our visit to the Top of the Rock to watch the sunset. We never felt rushed to leave and enjoyed the breathtaking views of Manhattan and the neighboring boroughs. The lines moved quickly and organized well by the building docents. The gift shop was a nice touch. We would recommend going between 8 and 9 pm because the lines were very long when we were leaving at 10 pm. The visitors were respectful of others when trying to take photos near the windows and made room for everyone to take their turn. I enjoyed taking photos of other families so everyone could be included.
We went on a Tuesday afternoon. Hope to catch the golden hour. Weather was nice. View is awesome. Especially when the city lights switch on.
With the voucher from viator.com we went quickly trough the waiting line.
I highly recommend everyone who wants to see NYC from above to get on the TotR and book a ticket here.
We had a great time
tour great once you've overcome the chaos of entry - despite viator ticket still had to stand in line, and entry staff seemed deliberately uncooperative
We were only in NYC for 12 hours between flights so were tight for time. Because we had booked our tickets in advance, we were able to skip the long queue which was great. The views from the Top of the Rock are spectacular, especially the view of the Empire State Building. Would highly recommend.
Great views from the observation deck, better than the Empire State building we thought! Buying the ticket in advance meant no long queues.
We went this June for the first time in NY and Top of the Rock was on our list.
We've bought the tickets online and it didn't took us much to go up.
The view was amazing as we have chosen to see the city on the day light.
What we liked the most was the fact that there are glasses so it is easier to see everything and you can even go a little higher an there is no window so the pictures are wonderful.
Amazing views of the city and less crowded than the Empire State Building
