The sights from the upper outside observation deck are simply amazing and I highly recommend that everyone do the daylight and nighttime package because both times are awe inspiring.

We had a perfect view over the City. Because of the priority Ticket we did not wait in a line. After we bought our pictures they said they are available to download. But they did not say that this will cost extra again!

Fortunate enough to have a lovely warm evening when we visited. We arrived at the lookout just before sunset so we saw the beautiful city of New York change from dusk to a glittering fairyland of lights. My personal favourite was the Chrysler building. As...More
