Top of the Rock NYC Observation Deck | Best Skyline Views of Manhattan

Take in 360-degree views of New York City.

Believe the hype. Top of the Rock’s three levels of indoor and outdoor observation decks deliver spectacular, unobstructed views of the city skyline. With terraces facing east, west, north, and south, Top of the Rock’s panoramic sights make it the ultimate observation deck in NYC. At the pinnacle of 30 Rockefeller Plaza’s 70 floors, it’s one of the top things to do in New York City.

The Top of the Rock experience is being reimagined and exciting new additions to the observation decks are on the horizon. While we are under construction (Beginning February 1, 2023), you can still expect the same fantastic views, but please note that access to specific areas may be limited while we work hard to bring new features to Top of the Rock.

Journey to the top of Rockefeller Center

Joie Chandelier

Made of 14,000 crystals, the Joie Chandelier was created by Swarovski exclusively for Top of the Rock. The largest of its kind, it soars 3 stories above the Grand Atrium lobby. And when you look at it upside down, you’ll see it’s in the shape of 30 Rock.
Filled with fascinating photos, information, and artifacts, the Mezzanine Exhibit walks you through the planning and creation of Rockefeller Center. And our theatre provides a quick video on the history of NBC and Rockefeller Center.
The iconic photo of construction workers taking a lunch break high above Manhattan was taken right here. And with our interactive Beam Walk, you can follow in their footsteps, and even take your own tribute photo.
It takes less than a minute, but it’s an elevator ride you’ll remember forever, especially if you look up as you go. You’ll be heading 850 feet (260 meters) above sea level to your destination at Top of the Rock.
Another Swarovski creation exclusively for Top of the Rock, the Radiance Wall consists of glass panels, blown glass, crystal clusters, and fiber-optic lighting. And if you look closely you’ll find tiny crystal figurines and animals hidden within it.
Enjoy three levels of unobstructed views––from the 67th and 69th floors, and on the 70th floor open-air roof deck.
The 70th Floor, which has no metal or glass enclosures, is perfect for photos. Take incredible skyline pictures. Or use the skyline as a backdrop for photos of you and your friends and family.

  • We paid extra to do the VIP tour which was well worth it...We had a fantastic guide tell us about the history. We also got to see the very exclusive rainbow room which is not included in standard ticket.

  • We went before sunset and spent over 1 hour going between the different floors and views. We loved the audio tours and enjoyed the Gesso app. We were on the VIP tour before and recommended it.
