My Visit to Top of The Rock
Is Top of the Rock worth it?
If you are looking for one of the best observation decks in New York City, be sure to head over to Rockefeller Center! After living in the city for the last fourteen months, I finally made it up here! Of all the observatory decks available in New York City, Top of the Rock is probably my favorite.
There are three levels of indoor and outdoor observation decks that offer unobstructed 360-degree views of New York City. The last time I was up here, must have been fifteen years ago! During this visit, my brother and I got lucky, we were practicaly the only ones visiting the observatory.
This is definitely one of the top things to do in NYC!
