Find yourself in the center of it all, above it all, when you visit the Empire State Building with its open-air 86th Floor Observation Deck. As the most famous observatory in the world, the Empire State Building’s 86th Floor has been the setting of dozens of movie and television scenes, as well as millions of unforgettable personal moments.
The Empire State Building is home to the highest open-air observatory in New York. An elevator ride to the 80th floor presents the Dare to Dream exhibit that captures the building’s history, engineering and construction work.
The Observation Deck on the 86th floor wraps around the building’s spire, providing 360-degree views of New York and beyond. From up here you’ll get one-of-a-kind views of Central Park, The Hudson River and East River, The Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, The Statue of Liberty, and much more.
Until you see New York from the top of the Empire State Building, you haven’t seen New York. Relive cinematic moments from movies such as King Kong, An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle.
On your guided walking tour through Midtown, you will pass Fifth Avenue, renowned as one of the world’s most expensive shopping streets and The Rockefeller Center, home to the giant Christmas tree and annual lighting ceremony every holiday season.
Times Square is one of the most legendary and popular locations in New York. Be dazzled by the myriad of flashy advertising screens that greet you as you pass many of Broadway’s famous theaters. Every New Year’s Eve millions of people gather in Times Square to watch the ball drop to celebrate the arrival of a New Year.
