We enjoyed everything about this activity. Easy to get into the venue. Easy screening, even with COVID protocols we were right on time. Great views, friendly staff and a clean venue topped it all off. I highly recommend this as an easy way to get great views and pictures of the city.

An dem Tag unseres Besuchs war es sehr wolkig. Man hat uns Angeboten einen anderen Tag zu nehmen. Wir waren trotzdem oben und haben es nicht bereut. Tolle Aussicht nettes Personal. Als Photograph macht man Bilder natürlich gerne zur blauen Stunde mit Stativ. As Sicherheitsgründen ist die wie auch auf "The Edge" nicht erlaubt. Auf the Rock kann man die Kamera jedoch auf der oberen Aussichtplattform auf Steinblöcke legen und tolle Bilder machen.

This time it should be top of the rocks in the day. If you're lucky, go to the Rockefeller Center to see what time is feasible. We were there at 10.30 in the morning and you still have to exchange the voucher for tickets. But that worked without any problems, so we were incredibly lucky with few people in front of us, if we waited 5 minutes, and off we went. So because you still have to exchange tickets, you should leave early in the day, otherwise you will be in the eternal beats at the ticket counter. And Top of the Rock, madness again, Manhattan in bright sunshine, fantastic.
