Empire State Building Tickets - Observatory and Optional Skip the Line Tickets

Empire State Building

Stepping into the lobby of the Empire State Building is an experience of its own. This historic landmark has been restored with stunning Art Deco ceiling murals, and above the front desk is one of the most famous images anywhere in New York City, a depiction of the building itself with beams of light radiating from the mast.

Head to the second floor Visitors’ Center to buy or print tickets and pass through a security check point. An elevator ride to the 80th floor presents the Dare to Dream exhibit that captures the building’s history, engineering and construction work. See period photographs, architectural sketches, construction notes and more, all paying tribute to the more than 3,400 workers who helped to create this building.

The final elevator ride arrives at the 86th-floor Main Deck and the highest open-air observatory in New York. This is the center of it all. Enjoy 360-degree views of New York and beyond — Central Park, the Hudson River, the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and so much more.

Awesome view, but the queues are a little bit stressing. But it is normal, because we're talking about one of the most visited attractions in the city.
Totally recommend!

Very well organized....we had no control over the weather as it was less than 12 degrees on the 86th floor...probably why there weren't any crowds!!
