Perched high above the bustling streets of New York City is the Top of the Rock! This destination offers one of the most breathtaking views of the iconic city skyline. Located at the peak of the historic Rockefeller Center, the Top of the Rock provides a unique vantage point that captures the essence of the city in a way few other spots can.
Journey to the Top of the Rock
The journey to the Top of the Rock begins with an ascent in a glass-ceiling elevator, providing a mesmerizing preview of the heights to come. As you rise 70 floors above the ground, the city begins to unfold below in an awe-inspiring panorama.
Upon reaching the observation deck, you’re greeted with a 360-degree unobstructed view that stretches for miles in every direction. The deck is also a marvel of design, showcasing three levels of viewing space that ensure a clear, picture-perfect perspective of the city.
