  • See Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, the Hudson and East River, the Statue of Liberty, and more from the best vantage point in Manhattan

Head to the Empire State Building's 86th-floor observatory first thing in the morning and see New York waking up from the best vantage point in town! See Manhattan's morning frenzy from one of the world's most iconic Art Deco skyscrapers.

Strictly limited to 100 visitors each day, you better snap up your ticket early if you want to be one of the lucky ones! Only a few people ever get to say they've seen a New York City sunrise from the top of the Empire State Building.

Enjoy panoramic views of up to six states from the surrounding open-air promenade and climate-controlled viewing galleries. Witness the taxi cabs honking in their yellow lines from up high, see the trees waving in Central Park, and wave back at America's great Lady Liberty, all in that fresh, early morning light. Have a magical morning!

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!
