ArrayYour Experience
Your New York experience isn’t complete until you’ve witnessed the beauty of the city from the heights of the Empire State Building. Climb 1,050-ft into the sky for amazing views of the busy streets, the water bodies, and the New York skyline. You can witness the sunrise over Lady Liberty or witness a stunning sunset over Times Square.
The Empire State Observatory is an iconic spot and has played host to many cinematic moments from movies such as King Kong, Sleepless in Seattle, etc. Relive these and bask in the stunning 360-degree views from the top. Upon entering the building, you're greeted by a grand staircase with a two-story architectural model of the building and a high-tech LED exhibit that celebrates lighting ceremonies performed by famous celebrity guests. Head up to the newly renovated 80th floor, the new landing spot for visitors going to the 86th and 102nd floors. Enjoy an augmented reality experience as you look through classic binocular viewfinders and take in the sights and sounds of New York’s streets.
Next, make your way to the glass-enclosed Pavilion on the 86th-floor. The 86th floor has the Empire State Observation Deck. This ticket also gives you access to the new second-floor exhibits that will take you on an experiential journey from the building’s construction to its emergence as a pop culture icon.
