We took up the option to do a tour of the Rockafella Plaza and finished it off with a trip to the Top of the Rock observation deck, so pleased we did.

We did all 3 observatories in NYC. This was our favorite. 3 levels outside was a lovely evening. Consider skipping level one and go to less crowded upper two levels for same view. Did the explorer pass option that includes both ToR and ESB for a little savings. One World was our second favorite, but it's all enclosed.

Well worth a visit for some awesome views especially across Central Park, once you have got past the security checks!

What can I say, was amazing. Clear night and the view was awesome. Saw the place light up green for St Patrick's weekend also. Perfect view and perfect night.

My friend and I were able to get tickets to this and I am so glad that we did. The view was just incredible and you can see the city at all angles. One thing I did not like was that you could not even get on the elevator to the top until your scheduled time even if you were... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
