The Top of the Rock Observation Deck has quickly become one of New York City’s must-see attractions. Located in the heart of Manhattan atop the famous “30 Rock” building in Rockefeller Center, the Top of the Rock features 3 floors of observatories – and perhaps the best views in the city!

Soar 70 stories high in a state-of-the-art glass-ceiling elevator for an unobstructed look at the stunning NYC skyline from every vantage point. Look to the north and discover Central Park, to the east and west you’ll see the East River and the Hudson respectively, and to the south, you’ll find yourself looking right at the iconic Empire State Building!

Wrap-around open-air decks as well as climate-controlled indoor viewing galleries boast unparalleled views and offer a comfortable respite for those colder, windy days. The Observatory is open from 8 am until midnight every day, so you can view the glowing lights of top landmarks in the twilight or scope them out during the daylight hours. Either way, make sure to bring your camera!

The Top of the Rock experience goes far beyond the Observatory. Its creators worked hard to ensure visitors have a top-quality experience from the minute they step inside the building! In the Grand Atrium Lobby, the 3-story “Joie” chandelier towers over guests, sparkling with 14,000 crystals! The chandelier is one of two stunning Swarovski masterpieces you’ll see on your Top of the Rock adventure. Other attractions include the Beam Walk exhibit (featuring that famous photograph of construction workers eating lunch while working on this very building) and an interactive light show in the Breezeway room.

For an unforgettable New York City experience unlike any other, purchase your Top of the Rock tickets today!
