Go up to the observation deck of Rockefeller Center and admire a magnificent panoramic view of Manhattan.
How to see Manhattan's panoramic view in New York
One of the most popular sights of the city, situated on the 70th floor of Rockefeller Center, is called Top of the Rock. This observation deck is invariably popular both with the city residents and New York guests, as it offers a tremendous view of the city and its surroundings.

To get to the deck, you should buy the tickets beforehand on special sites. Otherwise, you'll have to spend hours in lines, first, to buy a ticket, and then to get to the open platform. The thing is that its area is small, and there are lots of people, wishing to come closer to the railings and take a couple of pictures with the city panorama as the background.

The building of Top of the Rock observation deck is situated in the very midst of Manhattan skyscrapers. Thus, being there, you get a peculiar sensation of a total involvement in the atmosphere of urban landscapes. The observation deck offers an amazing view of Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Hudson River and the incredible Empire State Building.
