View from Top of the Rock
Heading up to the top you can enjoy the mezzanine exposition, a collection of photos and artefacts that tell the fascinating story of the Top of the Rock and Rockefeller Center. You’ll have even higher expectations when you’ve seen the exhibition! The ‘ride’ in the lift is spectacular! The lift’s roof is nice, so you can see the lift going up in the lift shaft.
Once at the top you have a beautiful view over Manhattan, New Jersey, Brooklyn and Queens! From the viewing area, you can see the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Hudson River. You can also see Central Park on the north side and the Empire State Building on the south side! The observation deck has three levels. On the third level, you have an unobstructed view without a glass enclosure, which gives you the opportunity to take great photos.

If I buy tickets online, can I come whenever I want?
Yes. If you buy your Top of the Rock tickets online, or if you use a discount pass, like the New York CityPASS or New York Pass you can visit any time. When buying your tickets, enter the date when you think you would like to visit the Top of the Rock. If your plans change and you want to go on a different day, it’s fine. You don’t need to change the ticket, just go to the Top of the Rock and present the voucher. It all depends on how busy the observation deck is of course. Top of the Rock is very busy, especially during the holidays. I would therefore advise redeeming your voucher/discount pass and reserve timed ticket for when you’d like to visit.
