Owner description: Top of the Rock Observation Deck, the newly opened, 3-tiered observation deck on the 67th, 69th and 70th floors of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, is New York City's most amazing attraction! The unforgettable experience includes a panoramic 360-degree, unobstructed view from the 70th floor observatory, 850 feet in the sky! Hours of Operation: 8:00 AM - Midnight, last elevator goes up at 11:00 PM.Main entrance is located on 50th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues.

We enjoyed the observation deck very much. The elevator ride up was surprisingly fast, and you get sort of a "show" if you look up while ascending and descending! We purchased the guide map so we could tell what buildings we were looking at, and referred to it quite a bit. Only $3.00 extra, well worth it! Our only complaint is with the photo people. We waited for at least 10 minutes (no real "line" just step up to buy your photos), and it was just not very well-organized. The person helping us had trouble finding our photos and started figuring it out, but wound up helping someone else in the meantime. We decided not to purchase them; their loss! All-in-all, well worth the money! Great views and less congested than the Empire State Building as we had heard from others. Plus, this way, you can SEE the Empire State Building!

... because you can see the Empire State from the top! I'd say that no visit to NY would be complete without going to the Top of the Rock. Amazing views from 3 floors and suprprisingly sheltered in some spots.

We really enjoyed our Top of the Rock experience. The amazing history journey posters which are positioned throughout the queuing area are really informative.

If you don’t like elevators then this isn’t for you but it’s so worth it when you reach the top - and equally when you get back to the bottom!

By going late in the afternoon, we got daytime views and photos and stayed until the sun went down for night photos. Great 360degree views. We had pre-booked which meant we bypassed the huge line for tickets. It is the best way to do it.
