    I was here mid-October 2014. You’d think by carefully prebooking your time/ ticket, you’ll actually catch daylight/sunset, right? Clearly, I was mistaken – the line ups are MUCH longer than we were led to believe… it took well over an hour of line up for the first elevator, another line up, security screening, line up after long winding line up, to a theatre line up, followed by, o yeah another longggg line to get to an elevator that actually takes you to the top of the Rock. The city lights are breathtaking, but my pictures taken through the smudgy glass panels were kinda underwhelming. Brace yourself for another epic line up to leave, which left me well, a little bitter to say the least. I am not saying don’t go(realistically expect line ups for any premium public view of NYC), just go prepared to stand and WAIT and if you hope to catch a sunset go well in advance. (And they won’t let you queue into the lines prior to your ticket time.)

    I really loved the views from the top of the rock. Great place for photos and for the views. I like this view the best because you can get the Empire State Building in your photos here which makes for a wonderful photo. I did not like the price which was $29, but its a tourist trap so what can you expect. You are not allowed to use the plugs on the top of the rock, I was told to unplug my phone from a security guard, so if you are going to charge your camera or phone, make sure you cover it up with a backpack or something.

    If you’re torn in choosing between Top of the Rock and Empire State Building, come to Rockefeller. Both are going to be chock full of tourists, but Top of the Rock is still less known for the majority. The staff are very efficient at making sure guests move to the destination. And if you believe the New York skyline isn’t complete without the Empire State Building in view, you won’t have to miss it! You get great views of lower Manhattan as well as Central Park. Be prepared that it is very windy and significantly colder up at the top!

    cool place, 30 bucks to go up are worth it. going at night is also a good tip, less crowded and the view is amazing in a different way. don’t forget to bring drinks/water, up there they are really expensive

    Sunset is the time to go, but not if you’re afraid of crowds. The views are magnificent and while the decks enclosed in glass are good, they can kind of ruin photo opportunities. The top deck is in the fresh open air, but FULL of people all trying to get as close to the edge as possible, mostly on the Empire State Building side. As the sun set, the crowds dispersed and the city came to life. So did my camera. But as tripods are frowned upon, not that there’d be room to set one up anyway, I had to improvise. We called by in the morning to book tickets for the evening, sunset times sell out fast.
