Amazing Views!

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Canadian Penguin Lover on January 12, 2009

The Empire State Building is a must-do activity in NYC. The building is stunning inside, and the views outside are amazing. Everything is really well-organized as far as getting up and back down from the Observation Deck, and the price was great. The elevators go up and down quickly. You take one elevator to floor 80 and then another to floor 86. Everything was well-coordinated to keep the lines moving for both going up and going down.

We paid the $15 extra to go to the 102 floor, just under the spire. It was well worth the extra to go up and look over the entire city. Even though it was snowing, we were able to identify many buildings and sites from the 102 floor and to get awesome pictures from both floors. It was very tranquil on the 102 floor (and is indoors!) as very few people acually pay the extra to go to the top. The tranquility from the busyness and hustle/bustle of the city is a nice reprieve, too.

We loved the Empire State Building. You can't go to NYC without visiting it!
