Empire State Building Observatory


Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan from base to antenna, the Empire State Building is one of the world’s most famous skyscrapers. Its 86th and 102nd floor Observation Decks, open daily from 8am–2am, offer two of the highest vantage points in the City. On a clear day, you can see New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Explore the newly-designed entrance featuring a grand staircase with a two-story architectural model of the building, multilingual signage and ticket kiosks in 9 languages, a new lighting ceremony space with images of past celebrity visitors, and a red carpet for VIP guests. Enhance your visit with the free Empire State Building app, available on the App Store and Google Play.
