The view is beautiful, definitely worth it. The only flaw ..... too many people, it took us 30 minutes to get to the front row to take a picture. The outgoing flow should be better managed, those who arrive then do not leave and continue to send people up. Nothing dangerous, just a little confusion.

If you’re looking for a beautiful 360-degree view of the city, this attraction is a good option. As far as seeing iconic locations, on one side you get The Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, One World Trade Center and even Ellis Island/ The Statue of Liberty. On the other side, you get Central Park. Our wait to get in was less than 15-minutes and all of the employees who were working were incredibly friendly/ helpful. If you want obstruction free pictures, go the very top landing of the building. When you’re done for the day, you can go outside and enjoy the scenery of Rockefeller Plaza where they have the Christmas tree and roller/ skating rink. There’s even a water feature to cool off on a hot day. You’ve got to try this at least once if you’re ever in the city and it doesn’t take up too much time, either.

I had booked a timeslot for 5:55pm. But I was already there at 5 p.m. and was able to pick up my ticket directly at the ticket office without queuing because nothing was going on. Once at the top you have a great view. All floors were open. The employees were all nice and explained where what was and where you had to go. I was there for a good 2 hours and enjoyed the view. Always my pleasure
