Overview

Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan from base to antenna, the Empire State Building (ESB) is the World’s Most Famous Building. Our 86th Floor Observation Deck, open daily, offers the highest 360 degree open-air vantage point in New York City and on a clear day, you can see up to six states–New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Immerse yourself in the Empire State Building story on your way to the top. Located on the 2nd and 80th floors, exhibits are open to all ticket holders.

Choose to upgrade to the Skip-the-Line ticket to make your way down the red carpet and skip all the lines on your way to the Main Deck. Experience the convenience of an expedited journey to the top of the building.

For the ultimate experience, upgrade to include the observatory on the 102nd Floor. Take your New York City experience higher. Our reimagined 102nd floor offers unmatched, floor-to-ceiling views stretching up to 80 miles on a clear day.

Worth every penny. Recommend going at dusk time. Gets chilly up the top so might want a coat would bother upgrading to the highest platform. Best pictures are from the 86th

Wonderful iconic view of New York at night. The city lights at night and quick ride to the 86th were well worth it. Next trip we will go higher.

Had a friend visiting that had never been to NYC before and wanted to see the city. We both found the tour to be fun and informative.
