New York City is a city of landmarks and few are more iconic than the grand Empire State Building. Standing at an extravagant 102 stories plus a rooftop observation deck, this engineering masterpiece was the world's tallest building for 40 years. Currently standing as the tallest building in New York City, the Empire State Building offers the perfect landmark opportunity to stand on top of the world and look down at the gigantic kingdom of the Big Apple below.
An American cultural icon of Art Deco architecture and Hollywood fame, the Empire State Building has been pictured in a number of movies and TV shows, perhaps none so iconic as King Kong. You won't have to worry about any dangerously large apes on your trip to the top, however. Open from 8 am to 2 am, you'll have plenty of opportunities to see the City that Never Sleeps from above, which is the way it should be. Many different companies have tried to market the same experience but it's never quite as good as what the classic Empire State Building observation deck can deliver. Its impressive height at 1,250 feet, the observation deck rooftop is the absolute perfect spot to observe the sights and sounds of bustling New York.
The Empire State Building, aka the World's Most Famous Building, now also offers a new full-floor gallery with immersive exhibits such as Construction, King Kong, and Otis Elevators.
The Empire State Building is also home to the STATE Grill & Bar where you can find delectable plates of delicious meals, serving breakfast through dinner. Stop by after your tour up top and eat overlooking gorgeous views of the city below.
