Amazing, of course. It was my second time visiting, but I went with some colleagues because we had a meeting there. However, the top floor was closed when we were there and it now costs (gulp) $60 to visit! We went Friday at 5:30 p.m., and there was absolutely no line. When we were leaving around 6 or 6:30, there was a huge line to come in. So amazing, you can see the entire city from up there. If you plan to go out on the observation deck during the winter, remember that it's outdoors, and bring a warm coat.

After coming down on a crystal clear night - after seeing everything that anyone can imagine seeing, I guess that I had a really glowing expression, because one of the tour guides told me that it looks like that "I am feeling no pain". And he was completely, totally, absolutely right!! I also recommend the lobby restaurant called the State Grill and Bar. Great drinks, gigantic New York Sirloins and a beautiful Art Deco atmosphere. This also gives you the additional privilege of wondering all around the entire lobby floor. The sites are incredible, the multicolored marble walls and floors, the 24 karat gold ceilings, the gigantic mural of the Empire State Building broadcasting out to the world, and the amazing bridges three levels above connecting one upper hallway to another.

Such an iconic building with great view over the city. There was no line at all during our visit (evening around 7:30pm). We could just walk right up to the ticket booth, didn't have to wait for or share the elevator. The view was breathtaking, there was enough room to take pictures, there were only a few people on the roof. The view is totally different compared to daytime (and from Top of the Rock). Would definitely recommend to visit it twice (day and night) if you can afford it!

Beautiful experience going to the top at Floor 86. Sure you can pay another 20$ to go to Floor 102 but I'm telling you that the point of view at 86 is great. The building is really beautiful from the lobby, floor 80 where all the history items are, and floor 86. Staff were nice and helpful getting us corralled from place to place. Come at night!!

A great experience in an iconic city. We went to the 86th floor on a very windy day and got amazing views as you can expect. All staff very friendly and lots of security on which I find important in modern day times. A must when you visit. As a tip though, between the 2 I would choose Top Of The Rock as more impressive views in my opinion but both worth doing!
