We couldn't decide between this and top of the rock but we are so pleased we did Empire State Building. It was higher up and we loved the Art Deco feel inside the building, the whole experience was brilliant!

We arrived on a Wednesday around 930 and there were no queues, the staff were friendly and very chatty and we had a great time up on the 86th floor. It was such a clear day we could see as far as the eye would...More

The best view in NYC is in the empire state building to the north, South, East and West. The service was the best.

I came with my school this past week. The view was super pretty, especially during golden hour and the sunset, and the atmosphere was very welcoming. The only thing was that it was very crowded.

It was great to go twice a day. The view at morning was glorious and at night there was a jazz man that makes the atmosphere so romantic despite the wind and cold weather!

We did not book Empire State Building in advance. We were not there at a peak time. I could see where it would help to already have tickets if there were long lines. I think the New York Pass depends on how many days... More
