Rockefeller Center is a worldwide icon, built nearly a century ago by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. as a “city within the city.” Today, its collection of art deco buildings surrounding the world-renowned plaza and Rink together comprise the city’s most dynamic destination to work and play. The Center’s unparalleled sense of New York City soul underpins its unmatched art, design, programming, shopping, and entertainment opportunities. Recent projects not only include new restaurants from the City’s most celebrated culinary talent, but a curated collection of bar and retail partners alongside over 100 works of public art dating back nearly a century.
Nestled at the height of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, Top of the Rock’s three levels of indoor and outdoor observation decks deliver spectacular, unobstructed views of the city skyline. With terraces facing east, west, north, and south, Top of the Rock’s panoramic sights make it the ultimate observation deck in NYC. Explore 9,500 square feet of unobstructed outdoor viewing space, the most of any New York observatory. Soaring 70 floors above Rockefeller Center, it’s one of the top things to do in New York City. Upon arriving at 30 Rockefeller Center, take time to admire the stunning, shimmering Swarovski chandelier on your way to the mezzanine level. Head up to the Top in less than 1 minute with a ride up 850 feet (260 m). Top off your visit with breathtaking views from the completely open-air deck on the 70th-floor of Central Park, Empire State Building, One World Trade Center and downtown Manhattan.
