Top of the Rock Observation Deck
Rockefeller Center is a popular tourist destination, a commercial complex around a square that houses 19 buildings between 48th street and 51st street in Manhattan. Right in the center of Midtown, Rockefeller Center is a National Landmark. It is home to its most famous building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, nicknamed “30 Rock” and the subject of a comedy TV show. The skyscraper building houses NBC studios, and it is home to many of the network’s TV studios. Come for a tour and peek in on the filming of the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, or try your luck on getting tickets to always hilarious Saturday Night Live. The biggest draw to Rockefeller Center is the view from the top of the building. The Top of the Rock Observation Deck is a very popular destination by tourists who want to see the absolute best view of New York City that money can buy. Once again, this is a very popular attraction so it’s important to book your reservation in advance. The observation deck is open daily from 8 am to Midnight, so another thing to consider is what time you want to see your view. Why not maximize the experience and plan to get to the Top of the Rock at Sunset, for a really unforgettable experience. Tickets start at $30 for adults and $20 for children.
