    Head to the top of the building to see panoramic views of the city. I like this view better than from the Empire State Building, because you get that building in your view, giving you a better skyline shot.

    Took this trip on Friday night as the last stop of a layover day in NYC. I'll keep this brief. It's crowded. Without the VIP pass the queuing for lifts up and down would have taken too long. Showing it to the ushers was like having a Wonka golden ticket. Right this way sir! The views are superb except for the Chrysler building which is partially hidden. Head for the very top for better pictures as you are behind glass on the other observation levels. The Rockefeller centre is worth looking around as well. Unfortunately the Rainbow Room didn't accept the VIP pass :) but it otherwise made the visit enjoyable and is worth the premium - not sure a standard ticket would deliver as good an experience.

    Definitely worth visiting. We purchased pre purchased a CityPass C3 ticket, so getting in was easy. Incredible views through glass barriers, not bars, on 2 levels viewing levels. Top level has uninterrupted views.

    Great views of the city from 3 levels. Quite busy but still room for the photographs. Well worth a visit.

    Fantastic view of the city from a beautiful deco building - worth walking around even without the view! Much better organised and set up than the Empire State, and better views through the glass barriers. You can walk up steps to a higher viewing platform, worth doing if quite vertiginous. Well worth the entrance fee.

    This is the best view you can of New York City. But why are tickets so pricey? Why is the staff so rude and treats clients like cattle? Make sure you get there ahead of time. When I tried to buy tickets in the afternoon the only remaining slots was late at night.

    This was an awesome experience! AND for $5 you can purchase a digital photo of yourself in front of the Empire State Building from the VERY top of Rockefeller Center. Incredible!

    Love, Love, Love this place ! Book your tickets in advance ! Go Early in the morning! Then enjoy ! Large roof space ,glass instead of metal railings , Stunning views , I've been several times and just love it , it feels open and airy , not at all claustrophobic.

    I can recommend going up there 15-30 min before sunset, then you'll have NYC in daylight and in the evening. The view from the top offers a nearly 365" view of the city. If visiting in the evening / in cold weather bring a jacket, it gets windy on the top(!!!). You will find a ton of tourists up there, so you will have to queue for the "perfect" shot of the city.

    Top of the Rock Observation Deck was beautiful! I would recommend ordering tickets online it will save you at least $8-$10 or buy a nyc pass which is included in the price already. I was disappointed bc on the website it looks like it's an opened space outside surrounded by glass but it's not it's inside the building with 360 degree views of the city. Also you can not see central park like the picture on the website shows:( The only way to see particular places is to use the devices they allow you to use for $15 each. I still enjoyed the view of the city & harbor!

    The ride on the elevator is a New York City history review. It is impressive to see how our city has change and growth into the beautiful city that we enjoy now.

    This is an excellent view and you can rent a E pad that will identify the building that you are viewing. Breath taking

    I went to the TOTR very late in the evening (10:45pm) on a Thursday. I had booked online for 10:55pm but they waved me right through without waiting. You walk upstairs to an area with some history of the building and tourist-oriented photo op (kind of cheesy but I'm sure some will like it). Then it was up the elevator to the top floor which is a large observation area with lots of room to move (as opposed to the ESB). It has glass all around which could be cleaned by staff as it gets pretty stained with people's fingers/nose etc. There is a small staircase leading to the very top area. This is excellent as there is no barrier and provides an unobstructed view. There are also some pillars on the ledge where you can put you camera down for a timed photo. TOTR provides an excellent view over Manhattan. Worth a visit.

    We were encouraged to do one of the observation decks whilst in New York, so glad we paid attention. To be able to see an overview of the whole city was fantastic. Whilst I was tempted to go to the Empire State Building this gave me a wonderful view of that building I would not have got had I gone there.

    The best time to visit is just before sunset and stay till after the sun has set. Take lots of pics and see the difference!!! Seeing the sun setting and buildings beginning to light up is amazing. Well worth a visit.

    We bought city pass tickets online before the trip and when we got there, my mother pulled it up on her phone and the guy helping us totally had a rude reaction to it. We took the tour which was basically a video about the place and then we upstairs to the top for the view which was the reason we were there. The view of the city was amazing but sadly it started raining so we cut it short and headed to the exit where we waited for 30 minutes in line to take the elevator down. The rude guy helping at the front desk and the wait for an elevator is the reason I rated this 3 out of 5.

    We went to Top of the Rock around 11am. It was busy that time but not super busy, we were easily able to get good spots to take pictures and admire you views of The Empire State Building and many other views that's New York had to offer. I definitely recommend visiting Top of the Rock when in NYC as you're able to enjoy all the views from the top. And it's right opposite of the Empire State Building so you're able to get great views and photographs of that too, at the same time!

    Ensure you pick a clear day and ask the attendants for info before paying. We went to level 86, this is an open verandah around the building, fantastic views in every direction. Toilets at the top. Polite and efficient staff, well organised routing of visitors. Well worth the cost provided you can see when you get there!

    Loved it! Beautifuls views of the skyline and great photo ops. Typical tourist attraction though. Forced to watch a video on the history and then long lines tk take the elevator down to leave.
