We had a great visit to the 102nd floor! There were too many ‘get off this elevator and wait in that line’ but I guess it’s a crowd control process. The 80th floor with the info on the building was really well done. It is...More

New York city as a whole is an amaizing place, a city that is alive 24/7. So many interesting things and places to do and see. It is i possible see and everything during visit, unless you have lots of loot and time.

We visited mid morning. Lines moved fast. Great time and the people were friendly. View is spectacular. Spring for the extra ticket for the 102nd floor.

A little bit expensive for just a lift trip and point of view. Anyway, this is a very nice place to visite on New York.

I probably should have went to the Empire State Building first. If you go to One World Observatory the Empire State Building view doesn't compare to it. Make sure you buy your tickets and have it in hand when you go. The lines are the...More

It's a long wait while queing for the first elevators... and than again for the second elevators... when you only reach the 86th floor. The view from Top of the Rock was far better. And when visiting New York next time I'll go for the...More
