Empire State Building Observatory


An official Path Through History Site! Soaring 1,454 feet (more than a quarter of a mile) above Manhattan, the Empire State Building is one of the world’s most famous skyscrapers and a National Historic Landmark. Built in just one year and opened in 1931, the world-famous 86th and 102nd floor observatories offer two of the highest vantage points and unmatched views of New York City. Open daily from 8 am to 2 am. Explore the newly-designed entrance featuring a two-story architectural model of the building, images of past celebrity visitors and a red carpet for VIP guests. Immerse yourself in the new interactive museum on your way to the top, and don’t forget to snap a photo with King Kong. // Photo 1 Credit: Getty Images
