Top ways to experience Empire State Building
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
How to get there
  • 34th St – Herald Square • 3 min walk
  • 33rd St • 5 min walk

I've wanted to see the view from here for years, and to be in the place where Sam met Annie (Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan) and to see how far it was looking down from where the beautiful suicide occurred! It did not disappoint- breathtaking views!!! 100% recommend visiting the 86th floor! The 102nd floor was not as impressive- maybe because it was indoors, but the 86th was amazing!!

I loved everything in the observatory. It was good to see how it built, but I was afraid of the high. We take beautiful pictures from the top.

View of the whole city not impressive for me but you have to see it once, my husband took the 102 floor and he told only 4 walls of glass I mean if you are in New York you have to go but they can improve the experience I don’t know

From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. I went with a 5 year old who had been reading about the building and he was not disappointed. I went for the VIP deluxe ticket and was glad I did. It was actually a bit less expensive since my grandson was free. The staff were helpful, courteous and cheerful. It felt like they were really pleased that we had visited. The Lobby alone is worth the price.

Staff was friendly, approachable, knowledgeable. Building immaculate, views to die for. A must see at least once or twice in a lifetime. Definitely go on week day. No long lines, no crowd. Very organized. Forget your tickets? Well guess what, everything can be printed out for you, just give your email and or your phone number and address. Plain and simple.

The Empire State building is a classic New York Visit and everyone should tour it. The educational and historical section is worth as much time as the view. Spend the extra money to go to the very top it's less crowded and remarkable.

Best experience and employees were great! There was not a time where I felt unsafe or pressure to complete the tour fast.
