I was advised this would be the best location to see NYC and they wasnt wrong. We did go up on the windy day of our trip but soon cleared having a wonderful time looking over the city in both directions.
I’ve been to the top of the rock three times now and enjoyed immensely each time. Very slick operation. Views were spectacular. The second week of January is a great time to go as there were no lineups.
We went to the top of the Rock after visiting the ice rink, the Christmas tree and FAO Schwartz at the bottom of the Rock. The views from the top are simply breathtaking! It was one of the best parts of our holiday and we’re so glad we did it!
Either Empire state or rock observation worth a visit. as well christmas tree @ rockefeller center is a must to visit. Ice skating in the ground floor is fantastic too.
As part of an organised tour we did the top of the Rock. We arrived early, which was a great idea. It became crowded soon after we arrived. We had a sunny but cold day. Friends were surprised by the photo I took with the big blue sky.
