We are updating the Top of the Rock experience! Beginning in February 2023, the mezzanine level and the observation decks will be under construction, but we will remain open.

There is a security checkpoint for all visitors. Be mindful of the belongings you choose to bring with you. No weapons of any kind. Food and beverages are also not permitted.

There are three levels of NYC observation decks to explore at Top of the Rock. The first deck is on the 67th floor, and it includes a large indoor space where guests can relax as well as north and south-facing outdoor terraces. The second, featuring the Breezeway, is also outdoors. Located on the 70th floor open-air roof deck, the third observation deck is completely outdoors and free of glass enclosures for unobstructed, 360-degree views.
