  • Ascend to the observatory decks of the 86th and 102nd floor by glass elevator
  • Chart the tower's history with interactive exhibits about this NYC staple
  • Absorb the panoramic views of Manhattan, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty

Once you scale the Empire State Building by a translucent glass elevator, you'll see why the big fuss over the Big Apple is absolutely justified.

Get unobstructed panoramic views of twinkling Manhattan, lush Central Park, and Lady Liberty herself out in the bay from the 86th-floor observation deck.

Continue your journey upwards with coveted Empire State Building 102nd floor tickets to visit the top deck observatory for a once-in-a-lifetime view you have to see to believe. From this vantage point, you get true 360° views thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides that allow you to gaze up to 80 miles – far enough to see six neighboring states from a single vantage point.

While the views from above cannot be beaten, don't forget to explore the interactive and immersive exhibits on the ground floor to explain the people behind the world's most famous building.
