Important information

Tickets are only valid during your selected time and date.
  • See NYC from the 86th-floor Observation Deck and enhance the experience with the official Empire State Building app
  • Admire the Art Deco style of one of America's true landmarks; it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986 and offers unobstructed 360° view
  • Enjoy two attractions for the price of one and explore the revamped 80th floor featuring exciting, artistic exhibits.

Looking up at New York's skyscrapers is quite an experience. But it's nothing compared to looking down on New York from atop its most famous skyscraper located in the heart of Manhattan. With ongoing exhibitions on the second and 80th floors, and two observation decks, the Empire State Building is the best way to see the Empire State.

The Empire State Building was completed in 1931, and this Art Deco icon still retains its charm. The smiling team of burgundy-uniformed personnel at the front door will usher you into this city classic. Marvel at the inspiring murals adorning the walls and ceiling as you go.

The most iconic spot on this skyscraper is the 86th floor, where many movies, like 'Independence Day' and 'Sleepless in Seattle', have filmed memorable scenes.

  • Show your smartphone ticket at the entrance
  • All visitors need to go through a security check. Glass items, weapons, monopods, and tripods are not allowed inside

It's a same-day reservation, but I went very pleasantly with a quick reservation and simple payment. The price was also better because it was half the price on the Times Square official website.

Booked the sunset slot approx a week in advance of our trip, for our first evening in NY. Walked straight in, no queues. Highly worthwhile paying slightly more for this time slot. Views incredible.
