- Get fast track entrance with these easy-to-use tickets
- See the most iconic views of NYC from the 86th floor, or go even higher and survey the Empire State from 102 stories up
- Admire the Art Deco style of one of America’s true landmarks; it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986
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 ticket lines with these tickets and you're already on your way up - it's that easy. 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).

We arrived early in the morning and were on the observation deck within 30 mins. It was a great experience. We tried to see the ESB the last time we visited NYC and were unable to because of the long lines. Highly recommend purchasing these tickets and skipping one of the long lines.
The best experience ever
A must do when in New York
First time in NY and we loved it. Going up the top of the Empire State was memorable. We purchased tickets in advance which I would recommend.
Went smootge and well
A única fila que tinha era a da segurança e para essa este tipo de bilhete não estava indicado passar mais rápido.
Arrived around 10.30pm for evening view, at top with 10 mins.
It was great！
It gave us a good feeling to know we wouldn't have to rush
Beautiful view, although it was raining and was pretty cold.
