The Empire State Building is one of the oldest and most famous observation decks. Everyone comes back from New York, saying they went up the Empire State Building. I read about Top of The Rock and wanted to go up there and just saw the Empire State Building as another view. I wasn't really fussy about the Empire State Building.
The first day I visited New York I happened to pass the Empire State Building and thought, am passing it I might as well go up to say I've been.
Main deck 86th floor
Top deck 102nd floor
Price : $34
& $54 to the 102nd floor
I first visited the Empire State Building in February 2013. When I was in New York in January I went up again to mark 4 years since I'd been up.
The Empire State Building view is out of this world. It's worth seeing the different views around New York, from different observations decks.
Where : Fifth Avenue on West 33rd street
