Insider Tips About Empire State Building in New York City

Check out what real Booking.com customers are saying

“The Empire State Building gives you an amazing view of the city's night skyline. I will recommend the Top of the Rock for the view of the city's day skyline - you'll be able to get a picture of the Empire State Building from here.”


“Get tickets for Empire State in advance to fast track for tickets.”


“Top off the Rock. Means you can actually view the Empire State building, plus enjoy a cocktail or two if it is raining!”


“If you want to avoid the crowds then I suggest going very early or late. My best suggestion is to do the Empire State Building at night. I went at 11.30 and didn't wait in line at all!! It's also open til 2am.”


“Check if you can book in advance. The best thing we found was booking a time slot early in the day (at Rockefella and 9/11 Memorial) and returning later in the day after experiencing places where you didn't have to queue (Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge). This meant we didn't waste half our day queueing for an attraction (queues for Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building were horrendous and did not offer the option to book a time).”


“We went to the 'Top Of The Rock' (Rockerfeller center) which gave an outstanding view, the main view was of the Empire State building but you could see for miles!”


“didn't buy tickets.. enjoyed just seeing where this world landmark is.”


“Too expensive.! Two adults and two children cost 194$ to go to the top. Views on the 86th floor just as good as the very top102nd”
