Top of the Rock
The opening of the Top of the Rock observation deck adds to the many facets of the Rockefeller Center's international appeal, which already include a skating rink, NBC Studios, and the famous Christmas tree. The Top of the Rock observation deck sits serenely on the 70th floor of Rockefeller Center. With its awesome views of Central Park, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, and northern Manhattan, you'll be transported to a more peaceful state of mind. Wile away the hours soaking in a gorgeous sunset or experiencing the hands-on multimedia exhibits. The innovative ticket reservation system claims to guarantee a comfortable atmosphere that is never overcrowded. There's no other place in New York like it.
What a wonderful NYC experience! The 70th floor observation deck of 30 Rockefeller was closed to the public for many years and has been recently renovated and re-opened. My husband and I chose to check out the view from the "Top of the Rock" in lieu of the observation deck at the top of the Empire State Building.
In my opinion, the views from the Top of the Rock were much more incredible than the view from the Empire State. (I've been to the Empire State Building Observation deck before during a previous trip.) Even though the Empire State Building observation decks are higher, the view is obstructed by the chainlink-like fence enclosures. The lower 2 observation decks at the Top of the Rock are enclosed with panels of fully transparent, non-reflective safety glass and the highest deck is completely open and allows for a 360 degree, unobstructructed view of Manhattan. The most spectacular sight was the view of the Empire State Building. This was the first time I was able to see Empire State Building from a high vantage point. It is an awesome "Kodak-Moment" spot.
The admission is a bit pricey, but definitely worth it.
