Best place to see the Empire State Building and the rest of New York and the park is at the Top of the Rock. Buy your tickets on line to avoid long line ups, you won’t regret it.

I could visit the observation deck every single time I visit NYC.

The last time I visited, it was to watch the sun set, this time it was during the day.
The city looks amazing no matter what time you visit.

Be sure to wrap up warm as it can get a bit cold at times.

Good to say you saw it. Nothing worth $36. But there's lots to see and do here before and after the viewing: shopping, ice skating, food.

We enjoyed the great views. We bought an advance ticket with a time-slot of 15 minutes when you get in. Ours was from 10:55 to 11:10am on a Saturday. We didn't wait in long lines outside. We got there at 11am, and were ushered right into the building and in the queue for security check. It did take 10 minutes or so to get through the security checkpoint and then another 10 minutes in the queue to an elevator. You are left off on the 67th floor and there are stairs and escalators to all 3 of the viewing decks on the 67th,68th and 69th floors. The viewing decks on the 67th and 68th floors have glass surrounds, but the viewing deck on the 69th floor does not.
Note that you don't need to wait outside ahead of time. Note you can wait in the basement of the building where all the shops are and there is an entrance to the observation deck security line there also for advance purchase time-slot ticket holders. Definitely worth getting the advance purchase time-slot tickets. It took under an hour from the time we got there to experience everything and be done.

It’s all about the view. You have toque up to get there. But it’s worth the trip. One you get outside you’ll want to go all the way up to very top for the best views. I love to take friends here when they visit NYC for the first time because you can see all the famous sites from the top of the rock. Timing is everything, go for the sunset.
