Well organised and only a little behind time scheduled before we got in building. Thoroughly enjoyed the views although it was very busy and as the lights started to come on at sunset the busier it became and found it harder to get close enough to the barriers to take photos so we left earlier than I had planned but managed to get most photos just prior to sunset

We visited 11th January at 2pm. Easy access and quiet at this time of year. Great views of the city and obviously the Empire State building. It got busier as we waited for the sunset, but still able to get great photographs without being squashed up! Very enjoyable way to pass a few hours in an iconic venue!

It's a great experience! Me and family enjoyed the city majesty. One thing you have to consider is that if you get "tickets on" they are not the actual tickets they are vouchers which you have to go to the Rockefeller building to get you actual ticket and the time that you'll be able to get in.
