Description

The Top of the Rock is an observation deck smack in the middle of Manhattan. It's perched atop 30 Rock, the famous Art Deco building that's the centerpiece of Rockefeller Center. Skip the ticketing line and go straight entry line to the 70th-floor observation deck for panoramic views of the Big Apple.

From Central Park to the Empire State Building, see the metropolis stretch out to the concrete horizon ahead. Top of the Rock is designed to resemble a cruise ship's deck, and it offers you something the Empire State Building's own observation deck doesn't; a view of the Empire State Building!

30 Rock has been a quintessential part of New York even before it was completed in 1933. Remember that famous picture of a group of construction workers having lunch on a steel beam? Yep, it was taken here!

This Art Deco skyscraper is home to NBC Studios, where shows like Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon are produced. Fingers crossed, you might see some stars too.

Top of the Rock was an amazing experience. Unlike the Empire State Building perspective, the observatory offers you an amazing view of Central Park. I loved the open air feel, you really are in the heart of the city!
