The Big Apple is always buzzing, but if you can't decide between day or night views from the famous Empire State Building, you can visit twice in one day with this special ticket. Skip the lines at the ticket counter and zoom right up to the observatory in sunlight – and then by moonlight!

So if you're looking for that true New York feeling, visit the Empire State at night or day.

The Empire State Building was completed on April 11, 1931, and remains the fifth-tallest skyscraper in America. It has survived giant apes (sorta) and stays open 365 days a year, so if there's one thing you should check off your NYC must-see list, the Empire State at night or day is it.

After a short security check, ascend up this triumph of Art Deco and marvel at Manhattan from the top of the Empire State Building Observatory. Witness panoramic views of up to six states from the surrounding open-air promenade and climate-controlled viewing galleries.

You'll also get to see the newly renovated Art Deco lobby and its stunning murals. Check out the factual 'Dare to Dream' exhibition, and the 'Sustainability' exhibition. Just watch out for King Kong – you never know when he'll be back.

Empire State Extras

For your own digitally guided tour from the ground floor right up to the top, the Official Empire State Building Guide app is a must-have. Download it for free from the App Store and Google Play.

Hungry up high? The Empire State Building boasts seven eateries. Choose a pre-fixed dinner package at the State Grill and Bar, which also serves local craft beers and cocktails. Starbucks, Chipotle, and Sushi-teria are also close by.

For something different, the Empire Lights'Wich is an Instagram-worthy homemade ice-cream sandwich that changes to match the lights each night!
