Top Of The Rock Observation Deck is an experience in history and scenery that culminates with unparalleled views of New York City from the newly renovated Observation Deck on the 70th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, in the heart of midtown Manhattan at Rockefeller Center. It is a six-level observatory atop the Art Deco skyscraper, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 850 feet above street level. Views include some of the city?s most prominent landmarks from the Chrysler Building to the Brooklyn Bridge and from Central Park to the Hudson and East Rivers.

The Observation deck was first opened to the public in 1933, though it was originally designed to evoke the upper decks of a 1930s grand ocean liner, outfitted with deck chairs, goose-neck fixtures, and large air conditioning vents intended to look like the stacks on a ship?s deck. Daytime or night-time - anytime is the right time to visit the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Breathtaking vistas stretch for miles in every direction.

Top of the Rock Observation Deck is open 365 days a year. Watch the seasons unfold or take in an amazing sunset from the outdoor observation deck. Plus, your ticket allows you to jump to the front of the box office queue. If entrance is not available immediately, you'll be allocated a time and your spot in the line will be held for you. Interactive displays are also exhibited detailing the construction of the Rockefeller Center, including three short films.
