Amazing! 4.5/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 11 Expedia Verified Reviews

See Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, and the Chrysler Building from the Empire State Building's 86th-floor observation deck. The second-floor deck, with both open-air and enclosed viewing areas, gives you a chance to look out on all 5 of New York's boroughs as well as 4 other states.

From the grand, golden-hued lobby to the sweeping observation deck, admire this Art Deco masterpiece, which was built during the Great Depression and has stood as a symbol of the city's enduring strength for over 80 years. Take the elevator to the 86th floor and step onto the outdoor deck to feel the rush of wind as you stand 1,050 feet (320 m) above the ground.

Toss some quarters into the onsite binoculars to help you see across the harbor to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, circle around the observation deck for 360-degree views of the Big Apple, and don't forget to scour the skyline for architectural icons like the Chrysler and Flatiron buildings.
