The Rockefeller Center's Observation Deck, the “top of the rock”, just re-opened for the first time in 20 years. I made a visit there last night. Congrats to those of you who guessed the earlier tease.
The view up here is better than from the Empire State Building. Because not only are there 360 views up here, but the Empire State is part of the view, making it that much more spectacular. There are spaces between the glass barriers big enough for camera lenses â good feature.
A spitting image of the Empire State?
The best part of the experience? Appointments. You're not stuck in a two-hour line like over at the Empire State, but I hear that landmark is taking the hint and may be doing appointments soon as well.
I'd have to say this is the best place to view a sunset in New York City. The only thing missing is a dirty Sapphire martini.
