REVIEWS OF Rockefeller Center IN New Jersey

Tamara Struebing

Bought my tickets online and should have just waited to pay with my cars when I got there. Absolutely NO line to pay with cash or a card. An hour wait to redeem this voucher.

Roy Hutchinson

Top rate viewing experience of Manhattan- the views are changing regularly with all the new builds but for great photo without glass or railing, this is the one. It can get extremely busy but with a bit of thought, the line can be beaten …

Hannah K Watson

Amazing views! Definitely worth getting the sun and stars ticket to see how the city looks during the day & at night. I'm not a fan of heights myself but I'm so glad I went!

Andy Benavidez

Breath taking views! If you ever wanted to see all of New York, this is the place to see it. I recommend getting the VIP tickets, as it gets you in and out quickly. If not the lines can be pretty long and in the summer that can be very uncomfortable.

Marilyn Burlesson

Brilliant views from all around, no matter what direction you are facing!.. We went up at night when you could see all the lights for miles and miles.. Staff are friendly and it’s $38 per adult to visit, museum as well inside with loads of history in New York, gift shop and the elevator ride up in 43 seconds is entertaining .. Well worth the visit, so close to Times Square

Amanda Bailey

Top of the rock is my favorite observation point in NYC! The crowd was well regulated so it was always easy to get a perfect view and pictures in all directions. Great view of Central Park and the empire State building and much, much more!

Neil Bishop

Bought advance timed ticket. Entered on time. Good display of the background to the centre and of Rockefeller. Short queue for lift (<10 min).. Clear top to elevator, so you can see all the way up the shaft. 3 decks to view from. Great views of Central Park, Hudson and other city landmarks. Helpful staff.

Mathias Telling Foged

What an amazing experience! The line moved very quickly and the elevator ride was interesting. The view was fantastic. I come from a very flat city so skyscrapers are not something I see daily. I probably spent about an hour just soaking in the view. Highly recommend visiting top of the rock.

Jo-Ann

So glad we went on the evening the views with everything lit up were spectacular. Very busy and may have to wait for good photo opportunities. Definitely not to be missed when in NYC

Jack C

I think this offers a much better viewing experience than the Empire State Building. Viewing takes place at 3 different levels and offers a less obstructive view than that at the Empire State Building. However, staff-wise, those at the Empire State Building did come across as better trained and more slick.

Hera Bell Portrait Specialist

Great city line views. Must experience if you travel to NY. Sunset time was like a human zoo. Be ready for it. The staff is very professional. They know how to handle crowds. Top photo spot.

Jennie Karges Photography

We went around 10 pm on a Wednesday and the crowds were minimal. Got to the top with no wait and had an incredible view of the city. The staff were so friendly I felt very welcomed and had a wonderful time. The one thing they could have done better was added a restaurant to have a view of the city while dining! Even a bar would have been great! The unobstructed view from the top floor was awesome! Definitely my favorite part. And I love that you can see the empire state building easily. Beautiful views.

Ankur P

To be honest, the views from this place are better than from the top of Empire State building, but one of the reasons that's so is because Empire State is part of the view :-). This place is usually much less crowded than Empire State and also seems to be better organized and modern. The views around and after sunset are spectacular. Wait till the time they light up the Empire State with their seasonal colors. It's very beautiful.

Chris Hsin

I mean, it doesn't get more touristy than this. Show up EXACTLY on the time on your ticket (not before - they'll turn you AWAY). Glass panels at the top but most people will want to take photos in between the gaps. Overall, a decent experience if you want some sick shots of the city. Nothing too crazy otherwise.

G Aho

Currently the best panoramic views of NYC is from here. Yes, better than Empire State Building. Also, more room to wonder on 3 separate levels, each outside. I highly recommend getting the NYC Pass if you’re planning on using it strategically, visiting plenty of attractions per day.

Jean-Sébastien Ares

Absolutely amazing place. Was hesitating between going on the top of the empire state building or the top of the rock, I was not disappointed! Amazing view, multiple decks to lookout from, and all the decks have huge (and clean) windows. One thing is you need to purchase your tickets in advance!

Vibhav Mehrotra

Good place to visit to see a view of the city. Top of the rock is nicely located between Central Park and empire State building giving you a good photo opp both sides. There are three levels for the observatory, first is indoor, second is outdoor with tall glasses, and the top most is open. Best pictures can be taken from the top level.

Rabeea Jabbar

Great spot for a nice view of the entire city. If you go around sunset, it's always very packed so go earlier in the day or at night. It's crowded always but NY itself is so beautiful that I don't see the point in doing this unless you're a tourist looking to take photos.

Mattias McAndrew

We went here just after it had rained, so there was hardly anyone there. The security guard on the top deck was super friendly and takes great pics. Great view from up there

Andrew Hatch

In my opinion, one of the best views in Manhattan. Check for less busy times or you can be waiting over an hour to go up. A bit pricey at $38+/- for adults...but than again, it's Manhattan after all. There is a decent food court near the ticket office downstairs with a Starbucks.

Esteban Alonso Ramírez

It is, by far, the most amazing top view you can get in NYC. The sheer immensity of the city seems to be to the grasp of your hand. Accesible to people with disabilities, although it could make good use of a few more benches. Each one of the three levels is spectacular. A must-see to any NYC visitor!

Etude of Memories

When you're tired with everything in your life, standing at the top of the rock, you will feel something different. Meant good way. Of course, it is New York so it is hard to park your car near this place. Cab is reccomended. You should buy a ticket before going up. Nice view with romantic atmosphere Required to visit here if you visit NYC.

S Park

Great touristy attraction even for salty residents. Come at night time for a nice view of the city especially during the summer. It feels electric with the mix of warm and cool evening breeze. Kids love it. Lines are manageable if you buy your tickets online.

Austin Lunn

Beautiful view whether day or night. You may spend as much time as you want up there, once you finally get up there and there's nowhere better to look at the city. Due to the small(ish) size of the roof it may take quite some time to get there on a busy day, though it's no big issue as they provide plenty of stimulation while waiting through informational videos and such.

Jack Bramhall

Pictures do not do the Top of the Rock justice. After visiting NYC a few times and only ever going to the top of the Empire State Building - Top of the Rock brings a whole new perspective with plenty of space across multiple floors, non obstructed and breathtaking views. Well worth a visit to new and returning visitors of the big Apple.

April H

Great views from the top of the rock! I loved being able to see the Empire State Building from up close. Also being closer to Central Park meant we were able to get some great pictures of it. Highly recommend coming here. It was definitely worth the price.

S G

You simply can't go to NYC and not get a view from the top of a skyscraper! This was an awesome experience and I highly recommend it for anyone at any age. Be sure to go on a clear day so you can see farther.

Nick Stark

great views of the city. The queues are not too bad. Security is tight but quickly move through. Friendly staff

Simone Atzeni

I went on the top of the building during the sunset and the view was wonderful. You can see the city changing its shape and getting dressed for the night with amazing colors. The ticket is included into the CityPass, which is a great choice if you have only a few days to visit New York. So take you time, go on the top of the "Top of the Rock" and enjoy the view.

Kris Lawicka

Visit 09/15/19 at 6:10 PM. Wonderful experience we will never forget. Damon F went out of his way to help me with ticket purchase. Its rare to find a person in customer service with this type of dedication. Thank you Damon!

Chris Plume

It’s an amazing experience especially at night BUT... staff have clearly had enough by 11pm. They are tying really hard but the whole place feels weary. Views are stunning, better than Empire State. Brilliant at night too (hence 4*). Oh, and clean the glass more!

Betty Lou

The lines to go up were very long but moved quickly, the elevator practically flies you up to the top deck. The staff was nice and well organized. It rained the day before so the sky had poor visibility nonetheless I loved this place.

Rick Graves

It is a tall building. View was good but attitude of some employees could use some work. There was no line control to buy/pick up tickets. There was a short line to buy tickets but those transactions took longer and a longer line for redeeming vouchers or picking up tickets from an app purchase. The four registers at the front did not control which line they served from and did not make sure people where in the right line. Was an irritating and time wasting experience. Lesson - go to the shortest line no one (who works there) cares.

David Jones

Really enjoyed watching the city go from daylight to dark at the Top of the Rock. There is some interesting history about the building itself and you get to see that in the form of some still images and three short movies inside. The elevator ride itself is amazing. This is the building where Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Late Late Night with Seth Meyers is filmed. It offers some of the most amazing pictures you can get in New York City from the 3 - tiered observation decks on top of the building. You can see the river, the Empire State Building, Central Park and much, much more. Get there early because the crowds for Sunset get pretty thick!

Adrian Muntean

An hour and something of waiting in total, definitely worth it. Went at night but I bet going at day and going at night are two totally different experiences. The views are breathtaking, way better than the Empire State Building, and you get the 360 view as well. Starting from downstairs, we got a ticket using the city pass and there was no line for that, but we had to wait for an hour (we were scheduled to go in later in the night). There was already a line formed by the time we arrived so we had to wait for that, got in and went through the metal detectors for which there was a line as well and arrived at a HUGE line for the elevators. Passed through some courtains along with 10 other people, waited in a small line and got in the elevator, got up and couldn't see much since it was night, there were reflections in the windows and all, but we've waited in yet another line to go to the higher floor and that's when we knew all the waiting was worth it. The view was breathtaking. It was partly open-air as well and from there you could go to an even higher, more narrow level that was fully open-air. I was pretty much fed up with all the waiting after a full day of walking but it was definitely worth it and I can say I'd do it ten more times at each day an night. If you have to choose between Top Of The Rock and the Empire State Building then choose Top Of The Rock. Otherwise, visit both.

Hezi Bosmi

The observation deck is just great. You have a view for the all area. The view for the Central Park is awesome

Helen7178 Holmes

Lovely views but very crowded. When you buy the ticket you have an allocated time slot to go up but there does not seem to be any control on how many are on the viewing platforms. Unable to take pictures from top viewing platform as there were too many people up there.

Tsveta Donkova

The view is great, you can also see Central Park, but compared to Empire State building observatory, I prefer the latter, because it's higher, there's more space and overall it has more history. I visited the Top of the rock during the day and it wasn't that impressive, but then went to the Empire State's observatory at night and had the best time there, not too many people, everyone was nice and the view is just magnificent!

Thomas Zajicek

Not much more i can add that hasn't already been said. I got my tickets online, so the wait was non existent. Nighttime was beautiful, even has an upper, upper deck that does not have the glass surrounding so you can get much better pictures. Lots of people, but it was not unbearable. After reading reviews it seemed rock was the way to go vs empire.

Michelle Griesman

Great 3-tier viewing deck of NYC, right at the top of 30 Rock. Overall great experience.... The photos they take are ridiculously expensive ($33 a pop), and some of the staff is not so friendly - but Jeffery H. was a very personable when we were boarding the elevators getting off & on. Amazing photo opps - and it was strangely quiet and not very cold. (visited in October)

Harriet M

Incredible views and a cool experience. Book ahead and choose a time slot. Don’t bother arriving early as you’re not allowed to wait on the sidewalk (got rudely moved along by staff), but listen out for your time slot because you’ll need to …

Buddy Sharpe

I've been to a lot of observation decks in New York City and Top of the Rock is my favorite. I especially like that you can see south to the Empire State building and Freedom Tower and you can see North to Central Park.

Shari Costanzo

Awesome site at night. We had just gotten into the city, settled into our hotel and headed to the Top of the Rock. It's a great way to end the day since it's open later than the other attractions! Great views if the city!

Mimi Wahinee

I went for sunset on Thursday and it was PACKED. Still very much worth the trip. The view from the highest level of Top of the Rock is incredible. I do suggest going about an hour before sunset so you get to see the whole 360 view of Manhattan and then find a spot you really like and stay there, wait for sunset. The colours of the sky is amazing when the sun goes down.The staff throughout the building is very nice also. I definitely like this tower of the Empire State building.

Michele Rossi

From here you can get a nice view of NYC including the Empire State building. Buying the ticket in advance allows you to enter at your preferred time and day with minimal to no waiting in line. Highly recommend at sunset.

Marc Kobrin

The views from the observation deck go on for miles. On a clear day you can see the building in the financial district. There is a lot to do on the lower floors too and should you be in town near the Christmas period, visit the iconic ice rink outside.

Melise Harris

Incredible views!! So worth the money. Go early to avoid the crows because that can definitely mess up your photos. We went at 8 right when they opened on a Sunday. It was light crowds.

Juliet Alexander

Great for a view! Well worth the stop. I love the architecture and the crystals on the walls inside upstairs.

Lauren Schroeder

Busy and touristy but thats what you expect and honestly the views are well worth it. Try and go just before sunset, that way you get the city views in the day and night. Very cool.

Ben Wiechmann

Great views and much quicker than Empire State Building. Whether or not it's worth the price of admission will depend on who you ask. The timed ticketing system worked very well for us and we really didn't have to wait in any kind of line. It's recommended if you think the value is there for a nice view.

Tortillas Jalapeno

We went around 10 pm on a Wednesday and the crowds were minimal. Got to the top with no wait and had an incredible view of the city. The staff were so friendly I felt very welcomed and had a wonderful time. The one thing they could have done better was added a restaurant to have a view of the city while dining! Even a bar would have been great! The unobstructed view from the top floor was awesome! Definitely my favorite part. And I love that you can see the empire state building easily. Beautiful views.

C H

In my opinion, this place rocks! Make this trip soon. This is a wonderful experience for everyone. To all visitors, vacation guests and to all those who love to site see, this is the place high up that you want to be. Top of the Rock has …

Pablo Canela

Really nice views, better than Empire State or One World buildings. You can see Central Park and Empire State from its 360 top deck. $38 general admission

Raj S

I love this view.. I think its worth to visit top of the rock, than going to empire state view, just because, you can capture Empire state in your pics from Top of the rock :) its majestic.. all tourists obviously go to Empire state , but on top of the empire, you dont see any iconic buildings to take pics of :) You can also get good views of Central park for photography purpose.. and it is less crowded than empire.. If you are in NY and choosing between empire and top of rock, do choose TOR ! 30-35 $ tickets.. but worth once a visit ... overall a satisfactory visit..

Balwinder Sidhu

Awesome place better than one world observatory because it is open from top. You can feel the breeze and can also see the view from too of central park

Nick Pidgeon

Best time to visit is just before sunset. You can see stunning views of day turning to night, stunning views all around New York. Definitely worth a visit. If I come back to New York, it will be top of my list.

Michael Mullahy

Being from London this attraction is just what you expect. The staff were all helpful and friendly. We went at 19.45 and the views from the top overlooking the night sky were amazing.

Jakub P.

This was great. Everything about this place was cool. You are not allowed to go there with a drink or a gum, but I have managed to get into with the chewing gum and two drinks, so that was okay. Not crowded, there weren't long waiting times which was nice. Took some good photos there. Can recommend this one. 5 out of 5 without any puns.

Jesus Lemus

Took my wife for her birthday to new york and a friend recommended this city view and believe me he was right. She love it and the view is breathtaking. 100% worth the ticket price

Maria Klein

The best view of New York. This is exactly that Manhattan from pictures and postcards. You can see as Empire State Building as Central Park. We were here in the morning and came back to see wonderful sunset and night New York (if you have enough time just pay a little bit more to see both of views, it’s really worth it). There are much less people in the morning than in the evening (consider this if you want to take some interesting photos).

Gayendra Wiki Wickramarathna

Visited 'Top of the Rock' n the 'Rockefeller Centre' in September 2016 during my visit to New York....It was a wonderful experience with a fabulous view of Central Park n the Empire State Building. I am sad I missed a night visit to see the New York Skyline by night. ..next time maybe...LOVE U NEW YORK!

Katie Castaldi

The elevator ride up was cool but the view wasn't as good as Empire State. Plus, you have to pay to use binoculars here, they're free at Empire. It was hard for my kids to see anything unless I picked them up. The decorations at the top of the building block your view if yours under 4ft. Empire state had lower walls with a fence so kids can see better.

Darren Jansen

This was a fantastic observation deck. This trip I went to the One World Trade observation deck and the Top of the Rock. The One World Trade Observation deck was glitzy and impressive as well very tall, but it was all indoors. The observation deck at the Top of the Rock not as high, but the scenery around it was much more interesting. Also being able to roam around outside on the roof of the building made the experience so much better than being stuck inside looking through glass. If you have time for only one of the two options, I'd recommend Top of the Rock.

Brayden Mora

This is a good option if you want a great view of the city during the day or at night. It’s better than the Empire stare because you’re looking st the Empire State from the top which makes for more iconic photos! It’s got a good history too. They charge another $10 if you show up at sunset. What a mean thing to do. But hey, that’s America. Never miss an opportunity. Don’t give them the satisfaction. It’s just as good without the sunset. Which only lasts minutes anyway. You feel a little like you’re a herd of cattle being corralled on a conveyor belt through the experience but that’s for safety and because they get huge visitor numbers. So get your patience hat on.

Katarina Hagan

This is my favorite observation deck in New York. You have an amazing view of the city and the Empire State Building!!! Of course the least lines and best views are at night.

Henry Andersson

Absolutely phenomenal views from the top, friendly staff and fairly cheap. Loved it! It was one of the best things of my New York trip!

Akash Dutta

The views from this place are stunning. For me, the best views of New York City. However, keep in mind that this is a very crowded place and people in general lack common sense and don't easily give up their spots. So you might not get the chance to get THAT picture with the Manhattan skyline in the background. If you're looking to capture the views on a camera, I'd suggest going down a level and getting your shot from there from between the glass walls. It's definitely not the best case scenario, but you can live with it.

Wilson Greenlaw

Top of the rock was awesome and totally worth it. I can't imagine going to the city and not snagging this view. I've never done the empire state building but I think this is better. You get to see the empire. We did a bunch of selfies with it in the background. And you get to look down on central park the other direction. We also did the rock tour.that was cool. The teenagers didn't love it but me and mom did. They did a good job of managing the crowd too. It was busy but we always were able to find a spot in the rail.

Kelly Wheeler

The BEST view of the city by far! Great view of central park and the empire state building! We got the city pass and went here and the empire state building and I thought this was better for sure! Either way you will get a great view of the city

D Bauer

Great view of Central Park and the sky line. Make sure you don't have a pocket knife with you because they don't tell you that until you've paid for your ticket, given your ticket, then at security check point you can have a 2" pocket knife. Then you have to exit the building to get rid of your knife while your party has to wait for you. I'd recommend to NBC having storage lockers to elevate this issue since they won't hold the knife for you while you take the tour.

Darcey Kaspick

Best place to see the city. We went up at 5:30 and got our day light pictures and stayed to watch the sunset and also see the city at night. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful

rosepetalsmhh

I went during sunset and it was stunning. Crowded but that is to be expected. If you want sunset tickets you should come an hour early to ensure you get those times. If you have the sightseeing pass or any kind of pass besides the citypass the employees tend to make you wait and help out the customers who buy the tickets on sight first. They made the pass holder wait even though we were in-line first.

Jason Warner

Great view of the city. 360 degree view. Lot of people. Sunset is a great time to go but it will be busy.

Wesley

The observation deck costs $38 as I recall. We got out of there as fast as humanly possible. It was interesting seeing the level of security around the NBC entrance.

Naomi Mulligan

The views were incredible. We had trouble booking online but this worked in our favour as we had been going to book both the day and sunset times to discover you can only do them on 2 different days in the deal. Also we saved money then as the staff recommended booking the last daytime slot and just staying up for sunset. We ended up staying 3 hours watching the skyline change and loved it.

R Sandy

Did I make it No 30,000?!?! This place is awesome. Great military discount and much better than going up the Empire State Building, as then you can see it!

Patricia Roberts

Definitely worth the visit, amazing views from all sides. I entered around 6pm to watch the sunset, worth mentioning that a sunset ticket between 5 and 9 pm does cost more money, around $10 extra I think. Can get incredibly busy so if you want to see the sunset make sure you secure a spot and stick by it. Access is very quick, lines move efficiently.

Anne Fernandena

Visited the Rockefeller center top of the rock observatory. Stunning views and especially a visit for after sunset. Even thought it’s an very old construction I feel it’s so impressive till date and views are amazing overlooking NYC entirely. Should view as can get great views of the Empire State Building too. Had a much simpler scenic experience here than at the Empire State. Less interactive but all about the view. Well worth a visit, much less queues.

dominik frutig

Spectacular view from Top of The Rock. Almost now waiting time thanks to the timed ticket, even in peak season. (Buy ticket online, select time, be there at selected time, after that only short line for security and up you go.) We enjoyed sunset and night view. Great view of Central Park and the Empire State Building. Could even see Statue of Liberty in the distance.

Dominik Münsterer

I had a very bad experience with the staff of Top of the Rock. We had booked an online ticket, with the bookable option "flexible" which would allow us to pick the time we go up flexibly. Once there, we were told to proceed waiting at the counter to covert the "voucher" to a ticket. We waited 30 Minutes even though we booked the ticket online. Once we finally got the ticket, we got it for 8:20PM even though we wanted to go up with daylight to see the central park. Thank for nothing, really. Even the view can't leverage this bad experience.

Suzy R

The top of the rock has a mesmerizing view of the New York City! The day view is so amazing and the night view is breathtaking. If you get a chance to visit New York you shouldn’t miss going to top of the rock! It is worth the money and one …

Erin Cummins

Brilliant views from all around, no matter what direction you are facing!.. We went up at night when you could see all the lights for miles and miles.. Staff are friendly and it’s $38 per adult to visit, museum as well inside with loads of history in New York, gift shop and the elevator ride up in 43 seconds is entertaining

Abhishek

Yes for sure. Nice view of the city. We went in the morning as we already covered night view from Empire state. I would recommend sunset view. Suggestion - Go for NY city pass. 3days are enough.

Dan Gunko

Really great views, but it is a quiet crowded location. Understandably, there are time zones enforced to try to reduce the population, but it is definitely manageable. One thing to consider, many of the spots have glass windows that also have smudges from all the people, so it may be difficult trying to get the perfect picture. Also, not a good place for portraits because of how packed. However, great view of both central park and the empire state building.

Tim O'Sullivan

This is one probably the best observation deck in New York City! The views are as good a the Empire State, and it has the added advantage of being able able to book your slot so you are not waiting around all day. A little pricey, but this is Midtown Manhattan.

Brittany Rivera

Some of the best views of NYC! The freedom tower and top of the rock are the best places to visit in NYC, I loved how it was open and you were able to get great photos on the rooftop, would definitely come back for the sunset view!

Gaurav Gupta

One of the finest open air dining points, Rockefeller is an amazing place to chill out with family and friends. It has an exquisite look to itself with statues and fountains all across the sitting area. The fine dining is in the center of the city just near times square and is a pleasurable and joyful experience Whatever the cost be- Their is every reason to go for a trial of a lifetime

regina rasulova

Amazing experience, highly recommend. But to get to the restaurant on the top floor you still need to pay admission fee. So if you are planning to just have a dinner there, keep that extra expense in mind.
