Top of the Rock
MIDTOWN WEST. First premiered in 1933 (and shuttered from 1986 till 2005), Rockefeller Center’s lofty observation deck again mesmerizes visitors with panoramic city views. The multi-tiered platform occupies the 67th to 70th floors, and encased in glass, it affords a spectacular vista of Central Park, the Empire State Building, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, and much more. Historic exhibits in the lobby provide background on the structure, and the ascent in a glass-topped elevator is a special treat. Although the deck closes at midnight, visitors are last admitted at 11pm. Reserved-time tickets ensure that crowds are small and may be booked online or by phone. An entrance dedicated solely to the observation deck is located on West 50th between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
