Top of the Rock


This still remains top of my list of favourite attractions in New York. Seeing Manhattan from an observation platform is like nothing else…there really is no other way to get a sense of the landscape and put into perspective how incredible this city is. Set at the top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, seventy floors up, it’s not the highest vantage point but it is definitely the best view. 

With Lower Manhattan and the Empire State Building right down to One World Trade Center in one direction, and Upper Manhattan and Central Park in the other, it’s the only spot that includes all the incredible landmark buildings in its view. You can’t see the Empire State Building from the Empire State Building observation deck…just saying!
