What you can expect

Look down over Manhattan at the Top of the Rock, taking in a 360-degree panorama over Central Park and the skyline of the Big Apple from 850 feet (259 m) in the air. With over 9,500 feet (2895 m) of unobstructed outdoor space, see the sun sneak behind the skyline at sunset or the city sparkle at night.

Before heading to the Top, take time to admire the stunning, shimmering Swarovski chandelier on your way to the exhibits and short films covering Rockefeller Center’s historic 10-year construction during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Then, hop into the Sky Shuttle to ride up 850 feet (260 m) in less than 1 minute.

Breathtaking views stretch for miles in every direction as you explore 3 floors with expansive, unobstructed indoor and outdoor viewing areas and decks. Feel like you are floating above Central Park as you take in views of New York's most famous landmarks including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, George Washington Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade Center, and the Statue of Liberty. Top off your visit on the 70th floor, a completely open-air deck! Hours of operation are currently 10 AM - 10 PM but with the last elevator operating at 9 PM.
