Description

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. Skip the box office line with these tickets and save time. With ongoing exhibitions 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 maintains its classic charm. The smiling team of burgundy-uniformed personnel at the front door usher you inside and you're in a timeless classic. The inspiring murals on the walls and ceiling are in that classic Art Deco style. So don't forget to look up (just as, when you're on the observation deck, don't forget to look down).

The most iconic spot on this skyscraper is the 86th floor, where many movies (like Independence Day and Sleepless in Seattle) have memorable scenes. The view from here is breathtaking, figuratively (and sometimes literally)! Take your time to snap some shots of Central Park, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, the One World Trade Center, and at least one of you beating your chest like King Kong did when he climbed the building.

DOWNLOAD, GO UP: Grab the 'Empire State Building Experience' app, available in eight languages, and fill your phone and brain with fun (and surprising) facts about the remarkable past, present, and future of this skyscraper.

LEAD ZEPPELINS: The aluminum tower atop the roof (where the antenna is now) was intended as a mooring mast for zeppelins. Unfortunately this plan was deemed too dangerous due to the strong winds around the skyscraper. (also, zeppelins tend to burst into flames quite often).

Great experience overall! Did not have to wait for the line because we had the tickets with us. Choose odd times or go early, otherwise, the place gets really crowded. The security check is a must though. Even if you buy tickets online.
