Decided to go to the Top of the Rock at night. No queueing no crowds, just a brilliant experience. Can't fault the Staff, who were friendly and helpful, when needed. I would certainly recommend a visit to the Rock.

Nice view even on a cloudy day. It was cold but enjoyable. Lines moved quickly and it wasn't crowded.

The building has tremendous significance to all of us following 9/11 and it was on our list of things we had to do in New York, along with the memorial & museum. The line was long but moved quickly and the elevators to the observatory...More

We visited the Top of the Rock on our last evening, following in from the Empire State Building. We found the views much nicer from this building. The staff were really friendly.

We had a 3:15 pm slot. Hot in line at 3:00 and with th lines and everything, actually got up to the top at 4:30. So I guess doable in 2 hours, but tight. Granted this was over Christmas Break so had heavy crowds.
