Fantastic organisation and a pleasure to visit. Great views off one of (if not) THE most amazing cities in the world. Crowds were well managed and lifts quick without queues. Fully recommend visiting Top of the Rocks over the Empire State Building. Thank you!!

Girl Trip to NYC! We went to the Top of the Rock right at 11:00PM and were turned away because even though they close at 12 they stop taking visitors at 10:45. At 8:00PM on our last night in town we made our way to...More

I do not believe that is needed. We were there on Veterans Day and walked in with no problem. Also you do need to go both during the day and again at night time. It is well worth the visit. Hope that helps you.
