Tips for Visiting the Top of the Rock in NYC
Visiting the Top of the Rock in New York City is 100% worth the $40 admission for the views of the city and general experience!
Purchase your tickets online so you can go straight to the elevators when you arrive.
Book the earliest ticket time (8am) on a weekday for less crowds and the best photo ops!
There are 3 observatory decks - head straight for the highest deck for the best views.
Bring a wide angle lens to capture everything you can!
There is no time limit for how long you can stay, but I would plan to spend 45 minutes to an hour.
If you're planning an entire sightseeing tour of NYC, consider purchasing the CityPass which includes the Top of the Rock and 5 other popular spots.
Dress warm and prepare for possible wind, especially if you visit in the winter!
